EQS-Media / 29.09.2022 / 13:15 CET/CEST PNE commissions Kuhstedt II wind farm
- Four new wind turbines with a total output of 22 MW
- Clean electricity for almost 18,000 households
- PNE's own operating portfolio grows to 283 MW
- Wind farms with a further 102 MW under construction
Cuxhaven, September 29, 2022 – With the Kuhstedt II wind farm, PNE AG has now commissioned a further wind farm. The four GE 5.5-158 wind turbines each have an output of 5.5 MW. The clean energy generated by the turbines can supply almost 18,000 households. The environment benefits from 34,000 tonnes less CO2 emissions per year, or 67,000 tonnes less brown coal per year, which corresponds to a freight train length of 20.6 km.
The new wind farm remains in PNE's own operation. The company's own generation portfolio thus grows to 283 MW.“Part of our corporate strategy is to significantly increase our own generation portfolio. With the new wind farm, we are taking another step towards our goal of having wind farms with a total capacity of 500 MW in own operation or under construction by the end of 2023. Wind farms with a capacity of 102 MW are currently in the construction phase. With the new wind farm, we are making an important contribution to combating climate change,” says Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE.
Construction of the Kuhstedt II wind farm in the Rotenburg district began in July 2021 and the wind turbines are already producing. The wind farm, which has just gone into operation, is to be extended by two further wind turbines of the same design. A corresponding application for approval was already submitted in August of this year. Two wind turbines will be replaced by two new turbines with a total rated output of 11 MW.
