PNE WIND proceeds with the construction of its new 200 MW Portfolio

01.02.2018

PNE WIND AG has successfully completed construction of the “Kührstedt/Alfstedt” wind farm in Lower Saxony. The turbines have a combined capacity of 43.2MW and are feeding electricity to the grids since the end of 2017.

Since the “Kührstedt/Alfstedt” wind farm commissioning, PNE WIND AG has been benefiting from the sale of climate-friendly electricity produced by the wind farms. In this regard, the company looks back on years of experience as a wind farm operator. Currently, PNE WIND AG operates wind farms with a total nominal output of about 69MW, all of them owned by the company itself. Some of these wind farms will be selected for re-powering to be modernised and increase efficiency.

Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE WIND AG: “Considering the economic success during the last year, PNE WIND AG will certainly start the 2018 financial year with a tailwind. The increase in the nominal output of wind farms which we operate ourselves guarantees that we have constant income from operations; at the same time, we, as the operators, are able to continuously monitor the quality level of projects which we develop internally.”
