Bremen/Herning (Denmark), May 18, 2022l 2022 – Energiekontor (ISIN DE0005313506), a leading German project developer and operator of wind and solar parks, sold a further wind park project to the Danish investment company Difko that is specialised in sustainable investments. The wind park project sold is in the Southwest region of North-Rhine-Westphalia, in the municipality of Düren, and has a total generating capacity of some 7,2 MW. The wind park is expected to generate some 13 GWh of electricity annually, which would cover the yearly electricity needs of over 4,000 average German households. Commissioning of the park is scheduled for April 2023.
Difko had already acquired a wind farm project in Elstorf from Energiekontor in August 2021. With the recent transaction the cooperation between the two companies has now been successfully continued.
„We value Difko as a good and reliable partner. The wind project Vettweiss-Müddersheim is already the second transaction with the Danish investor and thus proof of a good and trusting cooperation between the two companies. We look forward to possible further transactions in the future.", says Peter Szabo, CEO of Energiekontor AG.
"With Vettweiss-Müddersheim we are expanding our sustainable investments by another attractive wind farm project in Germany. Our positive experiences from the first transaction with Energiekontor convinced us and we were happy to again finalise this transaction with the experienced project developer," says Niels Jørgen Pedersen, CEO of Difko.
