Press release from 08-10-2016

Bremen-based project developer signs another contract on its path to success

Bremen, 10 August 2016. Barely a month after signing the contract for the Breitendeich project, Energiekontor AG is to sell its third repowering project at Grevenbroich to Capital Stage AG, thereby underlining its successful cooperation with the SDAX-listed solar park and wind farm operator based in Hamburg.

By repowering the wind farm near the city of Grevenbroich, Energiekontor will replace eight legacy wind turbines with a rated power of 0.6 or 1.0 MW with three new turbines offering a total rated power of 7.5 MW. With a hub height and rotor diameter of 120 metres for each turbine, the total expected annual output of the repowered wind farm will be about 30 million kWh. In theory, this volume of electricity would be enough to supply over 7,500 households with green power. Commissioning for the wind farm is planned before the end of the year.

Formed in Bremerhaven in 1990, the Company was one of the pioneers in the industry and is now one of the leading German project developers. The Company's core business covers the planning, construction and operational management of wind farms in Germany and abroad, and was expanded to include solar power in 2010.
