Since 1981 over 6,400 Fortis units have been erected worldwide and more are being added almost daily. Our sturdy reliable wind turbines operate across all continents, meeting a variety of applications such as powering rural farms and homes, public buildings, small and medium-size businesses.

A substantial number of these Fortis turbines operate in highly demanding environments including those facing frequent exposure to high winds and harsh operating conditions. Typical examples include turbines operating in Mauretania’s hot, windy and sand-swept Sahara desert, or extreme cold temperatures and stormy wind conditions experienced by Fortis units while powering scientific research stations at Antarctica. Equally challenging are conditions at remote North Sea oil & gas platforms, where daily exposure to the rough maritime climate including very high wind speeds is normal.

Fortis has established a comprehensive network of dedicated professional distributors around the world. What these professionals share is taking pride in providing tailor-made client support during all project phases ranging from planning, location selection, finance, implementation, to long-time installation upkeep.
