Bremen, 05 September 2022 - Bremen-based Energiekontor AG (ISIN DE0005313506, General Standard), one of the leading German project developers and operators of wind and solar farms, has sold the Bultensee wind power plant project in the federal state of Bremen to Austrian oekostrom AG. The Bultensee wind power plant project consists of one Nordex wind turbine with a generation capacity of 3.6 MW and is being built in the federal state of Bremen on the eastern border with Lower Saxony. The wind power plant project is expected to generate more than 7.5 GWh of electricity annually. This amount of electricity is calculated to be sufficient to cover the annual electricity needs of around 2,500 average German households. The wind farm is currently under construction and is scheduled to be commissioned in summer 2023.
The buyer of the wind power plant is the Austrian oekostrom AG based in Vienna. As a producer and provider of electricity, oekostrom AG focuses exclusively on the use of renewable energy sources and has set itself the goal of making an active contribution to the decarbonisation of society. Energiekontor will take over the commercial and technical management of the wind power plant after commissioning.
"With oekostrom AG, we are delighted to have a partner at our side who shares our passion for renewable energies. Both companies are united by the unconditional will to make an active contribution to the energy transition and thus to further promote the reduction of climate-damaging CO2 emissions. Energiekontor has a clear vision of the future, in which the entire energy demand is covered by 100 percent renewable energy. As pioneers of the energy transition, we see ourselves in a pioneering role," says Peter Szabo, CEO of Energiekontor AG.
“We are pleased to expand our power plant fleet in Germany and also to contribute to the success of the energy transition in our neighbouring country. With the purchase of the Bultensee wind turbine, we are taking a further step towards a renewable, independent energy future and ensuring that even more people can obtain clean electricity from 100% renewables,” comments Ulrich Streibl, Management spokesperson of oekostrom AG and Christoph Großsteiner, Director of the oekostrom Produktions GmbH.
