PNE WIND AG and STEAG GmbH co-operate in wind farm projects in Turkey
"The aim of this co-operation is to make a joint success of wind farm projects developed by PNE WIND and STEAG in Turkey" explained Markus Lesser, the PNE Director responsible for its operational business, upon contract signature today. PNE WIND AG will contribute a number of wind farm projects in which wind energy systems with a nominal output of up to 700 MW can be installed, together with its know-how in project development.
Joachim Rumstadt, Chairman of the management board of STEAG GmbH, adds: "STEAG has been involved in the Turkish energy market for about 30 years and has also been active in its wind energy sector since 2007. We are active in the Turkish market with a correspondingly high level of experience and can derive joint synergies from this co-operation with PNE WIND." STEAG has been operating a 1,320 MW coal fired power plant in Iskenderun since 2003 and has also been developing wind projects in Turkey for some years.
The projects currently in development are now being prepared by the joint company for the coming tendering round for wind farms in Turkey.
STEAG GmbH has already been active in energy production for more than 75 years and offers its customers - including international customers - integrated solutions in the electricity and heat production sectors as well as technical services.
Its core competence includes the planning, realisation and operation of both major power stations and decentralised plants, in addition to power station based electricity marketing.
Fossil fuels form the basis for energy production and - for over a decade now - renewable energies.
PNE WIND AG
With its headquarters in Cuxhaven, PNE WIND AG plans and realises wind farm projects on land (onshore) and on the high seas (offshore). In doing so, its core competence lies in the development, project planning, and financing of wind farms and in their operation and sales respectively with the provision of subsequent service. To date, the PNE WIND GROUP has already successfully developed wind farms with a total nominal output of almost 2,000 MW.
In addition to its business activities in the established German home market, PNE WIND AG is increasingly expanding into dynamic growth markets and is already represented in joint ventures and by subsidiary companies in 14 countries in Europe, Africa and North America. In these countries wind farm projects with a nominal output of about 4,800 are currently being developed and are to be completed in the medium term.
In addition, PNE WIND AG is developing offshore wind farm projects, of which four major projects in German waters have already been approved.
