Commissioning of a wind farm in the West of Germany

Green City’s two wind turbines in Saarland have been successfully connected to the grid. As general contractor and developer of the wind farm, Green City AG was able to complete the construction work. The wind farm was financed by a fixed-rate bond with a volume of 4.7 million euros in summer 2021. The wind turbines will produce around 20 million kWh of green electricity per year and thus contribute to a climate-neutral energy supply.

The construction work with two Vestas V150 turbines with a total output of 8.4 MW and a total height of 241 metres was successfully completed. In the future, approximately 6,800 households will be supplied with clean electricity. Construction began in March 2021. After the earthworks, the foundations were poured in the summer. Due to delays in the delivery of plant components as a result of the Corona pandemic, construction was delayed by about two months. The rotor blades were delivered in December. The nacelles were delivered in January and installed immediately.

Completing the two turbines during the cold season with adverse weather conditions was a challenge. “We are pleased that together with our partner Vestas we were able to complete the construction work so quickly and can now hand over the park to our colleagues in operations management,” said project manager Peter Reidelbach of Green City AG.
