Trianel Erneuerbare Energien GmbH & Co KG (TEE) has announced it has reached an agreement to acquire the 33 MW Uckley wind farm in Brandenburg in Germany’s federal state of Brandenburg from developer ABO Wind AG.
The Uckley-Nord wind farm, commissioned in late September, consists of 10 units of Nordex’s N131/3300 turbines, enough to cover the annual consumption of about 30,000 households. The turbines produce around 87 million kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year.
In Brandenburg, TEE already operates two PV open-air systems with a total output of 20 MW with its municipal partners. In addition to the project, wind projects in Rhineland-Palatinate, Bavaria and Hesse are currently in operation or under construction with a total capacity of 56 MW.
TEE aims to build a portfolio of ground-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV) plants and onshore wind parks with a combined capacity of at least 275 MW by the end of 2018. The 38 municipalities involved as well as Trianel bH will invest €500 million in the expansion of renewable energies in the coming years.
