PNE WIND AG hands over completed Görike wind farm to EnBW Erneuerbare Energien AG
Wind farm with 10 MW rated power is on the grid / Electricity for around 6,600 households
The wind turbines are also designed for optimal efficiency. With a special hub height of 108 meters above ground and a total height of 153 meters, they are specifically designed for the wind conditions at the location. The five Vestas V90 wind turbines, each with 2 MW rated power, which are constructed in the Görike wind farm, can cover an annual electricity consumption of around 6,600 private households. The wind farm therefore makes a significant contribution to environmental protection as more than 14,000 tons of carbon dioxide and other emissions are avoided each year thanks to the environmentallyfriendly method of generating electricity from wind.
Martin Billhardt, chairman of the board of management of PNE WIND AG, states: "The successful launch of this project shows the long term experience of our team in project development. Thanks to the great knowhow, we were able to customise the wind turbines in Görike to the conditions at this location."

So far, the company has set up 94 wind farms with 541 wind energy systems and a total nominal output of 782 MW.
Alongside its business activities in the established German home market, PNE WIND AG is also increasingly investing in dynamic growth markets and has subsidiaries and representations via joint ventures in Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey, the UK, USA and Canada. Wind farm projects with a nominal output of about 1,700 MW are currently being processed in these countries and are to be implemented in the medium term. In Germany (onshore) currently wind farm projects with a nominal output of more than 800 MW are being processed.
Furthermore, PNE WIND AG develops offshore wind farm projects, three of which have already been approved in German waters. Entering promising foreign markets is also being examined for the offshore area.
