The acquisition will help Titan Wind Energy to expand its market position with the addition of a new line of business

The takeover of the facility will take place through the newly recognised Titan Wind Energy (Germany), which will be a wholly-owned subsidiary to Titan Wind Energy (Europe).
Titan Wind Energy (Europe) President Michael Buus Nielsen said: “Ambau has been playing an important role of supplying foundations for offshore wind turbines in the North Sea area and has an ideal location for the future demand within the offshore wind industry.
“With the experience from the facility in Cuxhaven and the many years of experience from tower production in Denmark, we will be able to utilize the synergies and knowhow to create a strong setup for the future.”
