The wind farm will consist of 9 Nordex N117 turbines each with a capacity of 2.4 megawatts. WKN will be responsible for the construction of the project, and will also be commissioned as EPC contractor by John Laing.

WKN AG, which is part of the PNE WIND Group, again demonstrates its decades of experience in the construction of turnkey wind farms. "One of our major competencies surely is the contracting of huge and international infrastructural projects", explains Roland Stanze, COO of WKN AG. "Thus, we are looking forward to realizing the first project related to our framework agreement concluded with John Laing beginning of this year."

Ross McArthur, Managing Director Renewable Energy at John Laing: "We are pleased to have developed an excellent working relationship with WKN and following on from the signing of a three project Framework Agreement earlier this year to have closed the first project together"
