Germany’s Windwarts Energie plans to build a 20 MW wind park in Buren, in
the German state of Northrhine-Westphalia, the company said Friday.
The park is to consist of 10 turbines of 2 MW capacity each and is due to
take up operations in the first half of 2009, Windwarts Energie said.
According to the company, annual production is to amount to about 50 GWh,
equaling the supply for about 16,500 households.
Windwarts Energie said the location Buren–with an average wind speed of
7.2 meters/second–proved that there was still potential for the realization
of wind parks within Germany.
Windwarts Energie is involved in wind, solar and biogas projects in
Germany and abroad. So far, the Hanover-based company has developed 102 wind energy units and 16 solar units, with an overall online capacity of 163 MW.
