PNE WIND sees prospects for offshore wind energy on Germany's coastline

PNE WIND AG is currently working on twelve offshore wind farm projects

Cuxhaven, 5th December 2013 – The wind farm project developer, PNE WIND AG, sees further prospects for an expansion of offshore wind energy on Germany's coastline. In PNE WINDs opinion, the prolongation of the acceleration model for electricity generated by offshore wind farms as agreed in the coalition agreement concluded by the possible new governing coalition signals a will to continue the expansion of offshore electricity generation. Therefore, the current expansion plans should also be maintained for the energy revolution to succeed.

PNE WIND AG is currently working on twelve offshore wind farm projects – six of these are its own projects and six more are projects already sold for which PNE WIND AG is the service provider.

Subsequent to the Danish energy corporation, DONG Energy, having taken the final decision to invest in the construction of the "Gode Wind" 1 and 2 offshore projects, three offshore projects developed by PNE WIND AG are currently already under construction. DONG Energy had begun the construction of "Borkum Riffgrund I" in the summer of 2013.

PNE WIND AG has now received a further payment amounting to EUR 45 million euros from the sale of the "Gode Wind" 1 and 2 offshore wind farm projects. The prerequisite for this payment was the final decision to invest in the construction of the offshore wind farms taken by the Danish energy corporation, DONG Energy, as purchaser of the offshore projects.

RBI Solar - Dahlia Has You Covered

What if you could maximize the Ground Coverage Ratio (GCR) on your next project and not have to worry about the complicated variables that come with a tracker system? With a low tilt and clearance design, Dahlia® has the highest GCR of any fixed-tilt system in the marketplace. The system is available in three tilt options (7.5, 10 and 12.5 degrees) and designed to accommodate any sized PV module. The lightweight system is engineered with fewer components, several of which are shipped to job sites pre-assembled. This design feature reduces freight costs and rapidly trims the amount of on-site installation time required to complete construction. Maximizing PV coverage on a site can lead to an increase of production, which creates greater financial return for project owners. Over 100 MW of Dahlia® projects have been deployed across the United States, in regions of variable snow and wind loads. How much can Dahlia® cover and save you on your next project?
