May 10 (Renewables Now) - German wind project developer Wpd AG said on Thursday it has sold 38.3 MW of wind farms in Germany to municipal utility Stadtwerke Heidenheim AG - Unternehmensgruppe for an undisclosed sum.

The specific portfolio includes five operational wind parks with a total of 16 turbines, located in the states of Lower Saxony, Schleswig Holstein, Thuringia and Brandenburg. The plants use hardware by General Electric (NYSE:GE) and domestic manufacturers Enercon and Nordex (ETR:NDX1) and were put on stream between December 2015 and November 2017.

The combined output of the wind parks, of around 100 million kWh, is estimated to be enough to supply around 30,000 three-person households while saving some 100,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per year, Wpd said.

Following the sale, Wpd windmanager GmbH & Co KG will continue to provide technical management for the plants as a long-term service partner.
