In addition to activities onshore, PNE WIND AG is also successfully developing offshore wind farms in the North Sea.
Cuxhaven, 22. July 2013 - With the commissioning of the "Langwedel II"
farms with 575 wind turbines and a nominal output of 828 MW. "The building
and commissioning of wind farms will continue as the permits for the next
projects are already available" says Markus Lesser, Chief Operational
The "Langwedel II" wind farm, which was constructed over the last few months
as a repowering project has now been put into operation. Four Vestas V90
wind turbines with a hub height of 125 meters and a total rated output of 8
MW are now producing environmentally friendly power. The wind farm is an
extension to a wind farm which has been in operation for some time that was
also developed by PNE WIND AG.
As with the "Zernitz II" (Brandenburg) wind farm commissioned in the first
quarter of 2013, the "Langwedel II" wind farm was sold to KGAL GmbH & Co.
KG, an investment manager for long-term real capital investments. Both wind
farms are part of a fund for institutional investors. As with the other wind
farms sold to KGAL, PNE WIND AG is responsible for the wind farm's technical
and commercial management.
Martin Billhardt, CEO of PNE WIND AG, expects a further strengthening of the
onshore wind business: "The intensive development of projects by our team in
recent years is paying off. The volume of permitted wind farms, which can be
built in this and the coming years, is developing nicely. We expect a
positive impact on our business operations as the realisation of these
projects are before us. The projects are primarily located in Germany but
also in our international markets."
In addition to activities onshore, PNE WIND AG is also successfully
developing offshore wind farms in the North Sea.
