June 20 (Renewables Now) - Trianel Erneuerbare Energien GmbH & Co and ABO Wind AG have started building a 6.6-MW wind park in Germany, the first of 11 projects jointly developed by the two firms.
The Bad Arolsen wind park will be installed in the central state of Hesse, consisting of two turbines by Denmark’s Vestas Wind Systems (ETR:VWS). It is slated to begin operations at end-2019, Trianel said on Wednesday.
According to the construction schedule, the foundations for the Vestas V 126 machines will be cast late this summer, while deliveries of the components will be supplied in the autumn. Construction of the wind turbines will follow subsequently. Once up and running, the plant is expected to produce around 15 million kWh of electricity annually, or enough to supply 4,300 homes.
The 6.6-MW project is part of a 182-MW portfolio that Trianel purchased from ABO Wind last summer. The other 10 German projects are currently at various stages of development, the statement says.
