PNE AG continues to be successful in onshore wind power tenders
- Two new wind farms with a combined capacity of 55.4 MW awarded contracts
- Expansion of own generation portfolio continues according to plan
Cuxhaven, September 12 – The PNE Group was once again very successful in the round of tenders for onshore wind turbines issued by the Bundesnetzagentur in August. The wind power projects in "Sundern-Allendorf" and "Gnutz West Ib" went through the tendering process, having already received their permits at the end of June this year. In "Sundern-Allendorf" in North Rhine-Westphalia, 5 wind turbines with a total rated output of 33 megawatts (MW) are to be erected, in "Gnutz West Ib" in Schleswig-Holstein 4 wind turbines with a total output of 22.4 MW. Both wind farms are scheduled to go into operation next year.
"It speaks for the quality of the projects that we have succeeded for the third time in winning contracts for all the projects we put out to tender. We plan to include both wind farms in our own generation portfolio after their completion in order to further expand our position as an independent power producer (IPP)," says Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE AG.
The PNE Group's own generation portfolio currently comprises around 350 MW. The objective of PNE AG's corporate strategy Scale up 2.0 is to have its own wind farms and photovoltaic plants with an output of 1,500 MW/MWp in operation or under construction by the end of 2027.
