WKN wind farm Looft II put into operation

After commissioning, the Husum-based WKN Group punctually handed over wind farm Looft II to the investor CEE, an investment company located in Hamburg. CEE is belonging to Lampe Equity Management (LEM)-Group, a subsidiary of Bankhaus Lampe.

The Schleswig-Holstein project Looft II in the district of Steinburg consists of four wind turbines. Two Vestas V112 each with an installed capacity of 3.075 megawatts and 94 metres hub height as well as another two Vestas V90 each with an installed capacity of 2.0 megawatts and a hub height of 105 metres have been erected. The commissioning of the wind farm took place end of May on schedule. The wind farm feeds directly into the 110-kilovolt grid via a transformer station.

The expected annual power production of the 10.15 megawatts farm amounts to approximately 26 million kilowatt hours. The wind farm developed by WKN is now providing environmentally friendly energy to about 7,500 households in Schleswig- Holstein.

 

Dr Ju?rgen Dambrowski, CFO of WKN AG: Thus, our first cooperation with CEE worked very well. We are looking forward to further common projects. Detlef Schreiber , Managing Director of LEM confirms: Meanwhile, we have developed CEE to one of the most important independent green energy producers. In order to continue this success we are in need of reliable partners like WKN.
