- “Wahlsdorf" wind farm: six turbines with a rated output of roughly 19.2 MW
- Own portfolio now expanded to 252.6 megawatts (MW)
- On track in bulding up own wind farm portfolio
Cuxhaven, 19 April 2022 – PNE AG, which is internationally active in the development, implementation and operation of renewable energy projects, has taken a further step in the expansion of its own wind farm portfolio: In the German regional state of Brandenburg, the company has commissioned the "Wahlsdorf" wind farm with six wind turbines with a nominal output of 19.2 MW. This has increased the output of the wind farms operated by PNE AG to a total of 252.6 MW. In addition, wind farm projects with a nominal output of around 112 MW are under construction in Germany. Numerous further wind park projects are already in the approval process in accordance with the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG).
"The commissioning of Wahlsdorf wind park shows: We are on track and are steadily moving towards our strategic goal of having up to 500 MW in operation or under construction for our own portfolio by the end of 2023. Now that " Wahlsdorf " has been commissioned, we have passed the 50-percent hurdle. This is an important milestone in the implementation of our "scale up" programme. In-house operation also makes economic sense for us: Our own wind farms reliably produce green electricity at various locations and generate sustainable, continuous earnings," said Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE AG.
Clean energy for more than 14,000 households
The wind turbines at "Wahlsdorf" wind farm generate clean wind energy which can cover the average annual demand of more than 14,000 households. PNE AG is thus also making a contribution to the energy transition and increasing the share of renewable energies in electricity generation.
Construction of the wind farm took place within the planned time frame, although stormy winds repeatedly delayed the erection of the turbines.
