WKN wind farm Westerengel handed over to the investor on schedule
Wind project has already been put into operation
The Westerengel wind farm has now been transferred turn-key to the Hamburg-based investment company CEE. CEE belongs to Lampe Equity Management (LEM)-Group, a subsidiary of Bankhaus Lampe. The project consists of seven Vestas V 112 wind energy turbines each with an installed capacity of 3.3 megawatts and a hub height of 140 metres.
The expected annual power production of the 23.1 megawatts farm amounts to more than 50 million kilowatt hours. Thus, the wind farm developed by WKN will now provide sufficient environmentally friendly energy to cover the needs of 15,000 households in Thuringia.
Roland Stanze, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of WKN AG: „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 AG has planned, installed and operated turnkey wind energy farms in Germany since 1990. In addition, WKN AG is internationally represented by subsidiaries and joint-ventures in numerous European countries, South Africa and the US. Up to now, the company has initiated and realized projects with a total of about 1,300 megawatts capacity.
The headquarters of the WKN-Group are located at the "House of Future Energies", an established centre of excellence for renewable energy sources in Husum/Germany. About 83 percent of WKN shares are owned by PNE WIND AG located in Cuxhaven/Germany while approx. 17 percent are held by private and institutional shareholders.
