European Energy and Energiequelle partner for wind project in Schleswig-Holstein

Jul 03, 2024

A repowering project in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein has received the approval to start from the local authorities.

Copenhagen, Denmark, 3 July, 2024 – European Energy and Energiequelle have received the approval for the construction of eight Vestas V162 wind turbines, each with an output of 6.2 MW and a total height of 200 meters. This will quadruple the installed capacity from the current 12.5 megawatts to a future total of 49.6 megawatts. The wind farm will produce around 120,000 MWh of electricity per year.

The wind farm is located in Tüttendorf, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

Johannes Thon, Managing Director of European Energy Deutschland, emphasises the importance of citizen participation:

“We are delighted with the high level of acceptance and commitment on site. The community energy company BWP Tüttendorf Projekt GmbH & Co. KG will become co-owner of the new turbines. This will give citizens a direct stake in the wind farm and promote regional value creation. Citizen-owned energy is put into practice here.”

Sören Lang, Head of Project Management in Schleswig-Holstein at Energiequelle GmbH, adds:

“We are delighted that we can now start in Tüttendorf and realise the project with European Energy and BWP Tüttendorf. Repowering the wind turbines will make them more efficient and more powerful. The amount of electricity generated will be multiplied. The wind farm is therefore an important component of the energy transition in Schleswig-Holstein.”

Before the new wind turbines are erected, the existing ones will be dismantled.
