State-of-the-art technology for maximum added value
In Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, not far from the town of Grimmen and adjacent to the main B 96 highway, the Willerswalde Wind Farm is currently taking shape as part of a joint project between EEN and the landowner, the Hansen family.
Three eno126 wind turbines with a nominal output of 4 MW and a hub height of 137 metres, and one eno140 with a hub height of 129 metres, are being constructed on a 34-hectare site.
The eno126 is one of the most popular wind turbines. It sets new standards for cost efficiency and, thanks to its IEC-IIA certification, is ideal for a wide range of locations. The first of the four planned wind turbines was erected in April 2023. Transport of the main components to the site represented a particular challenge, with the bridge on the approach to the site having a weight limit of 35 tonnes. Special consent was granted for direct access from the B 96, thereby avoiding the problem.
Construction managers Robert Gloede and Robert Hirsekorn are working to a schedule of commissioning the three eno126 turbines in summer 2023.
The eno140 is set to be connected to the grid in the autumn. In future, these turbines will provide electricity to thousands of homes in the region.
For both the 4 MW and 6 MW rated wind turbines, there are exciting projects planned for 2024, together with the prospect of rising customer sales.
The project management team, project managers, construction team, owners and cooperation partner recently met up for a barbecue to celebrate the progress of the wind farm.
