PNE AG: “Zahrenholz” and “Holstentor” wind farms commissioned for own portfolio

  • Nine wind turbines with a nominal output of approx. 35.1 MW
  • PNE portfolio expanded to approx. 233 megawatts (MW)
  • Fully on track with the development of the own portfolio of wind farms

Cuxhaven, 13 January 2022 – PNE AG, which is internationally active in the development and operation of renewable energy projects, has further expanded its internally operated portfolio: The “Zahrenholz” and “Holstentor” wind farms, which together have a nominal output of approx. 35.1 MW, were commissioned at the end of 2021. They are intended for PNE AG’s own wind farm portfolio, which now consists of projects with a nominal output of approx. 233.2 MW.

“Zahrenholz” wind farm was constructed in the district of Gifhorn in Lower Saxony. Environmentally friendly energy is generated here by six Nordex N131 wind turbines with a collective nominal output of approx. 21.6 MW.

“Holstentor” wind farm was built in the district of Rendsburg-Eckernförde in Schleswig-Holstein. Three Nordex N149 wind turbines have been commissioned here with a total nominal output of 13.5 MW.

Environmentally friendly wind power for more than 24,000 households
The turbines generate environmentally friendly wind power that can cover the average annual demand of more than 24,000 households. PNE AG is accordingly contributing still more to the energy transition and increasing the proportion of electricity generated using renewable energies.

PNE continuing to expand its own wind farm portfolio
With the commissioning of these two wind farms, PNE AG has taken a further step in the ongoing development of its own wind farm portfolio. PNE currently operates wind farms with a nominal output of approx. 233.2 MW. Other wind farms are under construction and undergoing licensing as described in the Federal Immission Control Act (Bundesimmissionsschutzgesetz, BImSchG). PNE's own portfolio of wind farms will be expanded to up to 500 MW by the end of 2023.

Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE AG: “The commissioning of these two wind farms is a very welcome milestone on the path of PNE AG’s further development. We are fully on track. Almost half of the wind farms we have planned for our own portfolio are already in operation. Along with our service portfolio and the development and sale of projects, our own wind farm portfolio is a mainstay of our corporate development.”
