The Hamburg-based CEE Group continues to expand its wind portfolio and is acquiring the Gollenberg wind farm under construction in Rheinland-Pfalz. The seller is Juwi Energieprojekte GmbH, which is also responsible for the construction stage as general contractor. The wind farm comprises six Vesta V126 turbines. The hub height is 137 meters, the rotor diameter is 126 meters, and the wind farm’s total capacity amounts to 19.8 MW.
After commissioning, the turbines will supply environmentally friendly power to about 15,000 households each year. The wind farm was expected to be fully connected to the grid at the end of January.
CEE Operations, which manages the CEE Group’s power plant portfolio, will be responsible for commercial operations. Juwi Operations and Maintenance GmbH will assume responsibility for technical operations. This is the fifth project the CEE Group and Juwi have implemented jointly.
“By acquiring Gollenberg, CEE has also managed to continue the growth strategy in the wind segment in Germany in an extremely challenging market environment,” said Detlef Schreiber, CEE Group’s CEE. “Together with our reliable partners, we also intend to continue to grow outside our core markets.”
“The Gollenberg wind farm clearly demonstrates that turbines can be operated profitably in the long term even at so-called low-wind sites thanks to modern inland technology,” said Michael Class, Juwi Group’s CEO. “We are very pleased to have implemented this project with the CEE Group.”
The Gollenberg wind farm increases the CEE Group’s renewables portfolio to about 556 MW. In 2017, CEE’s energy plants are expected to produce about 880,000 MWh of power from renewable sources.
The Juwi Group is one of the world’s leading companies in the area of renewable energy.
The renewable energy pioneer with a strong regional presence offers project development and EPC services as well as products and solutions for the energy turnaround. Company activities are mainly projects with solar and wind.
So far, Juwi has realized more than 900 wind turbines with a total capacity of more than 2,000 MW at more than 150 sites globally.
