WKN commission Westerengel wind farm in Germany

CTBR Staff Writer Published 05 July 2016

WKN has commissioned the Westerengel wind energy project located in Thuringia, Eastern Germany.

The wind farm features 7 Vestas V112 wind turbines producing 3.3MW of power. Each turbine has a hub height of 140m.

The facility has now been transferred turn-key to the Hamburg-based investment firm CEE, which belongs to Lampe Equity Management (LEM)-Group, a subsidiary of Bankhaus Lampe.

Annual power production of the 23.1MW farm accumulates to more than 50 million kWh. This electricity is enough to power about 15,000 households in Thuringia.

WKN COO Roland Stanze said: "By realising the Westerengel wind farm, WKN again proves its high level of competence with regard to well-structured and high-quality project development.

"Considering today's turbine sizes, Westerengel has been completed on an impressive timescale after the approval had been granted by paying careful attention to a variety of environmental and residential demands.

"This has also been realised thanks to the efficient cooperation with the turbine manufacturer Vestas."

WKN has planned, installed and operated turnkey wind energy farms in Germany since 1990.
