BayWa r.e. sells 18 MW wind farm near Lübeck
BayWa r.e. has successfully sold the Obernwohlde wind farm, situated to the north-east of Lübeck in Germany, to the investment fund SUSI Renewable Energy Fund II. BayWa r.e. will continue to be responsible for technical and commercial operations management, as well as for the energy trading of the green power generated.
The six Enercon E101 turbines, each with a hub height of 99 metres, generate a total output of 18.3 MW, enough to provide around 10,000 four-person households with green energy each year. The wind farm, the construction of which began this summer, is now being commissioned as planned.
Obernwohlde is the third wind farm in Germany that BayWa r.e. has sold this year: “Following the successful sale of the Stroupster wind farm in Scotland, we are delighted to complete a further project,” declared Matthias Taft, Board Member of BayWa AG. “Obernwohlde, with its 18 MW, is the largest wind farm we have realised in Germany in 2015. We have now sold a total of six wind farms worldwide within the past twelve months and can look back on a very positive year,” Mr Taft continued.
This sale is a continuation of the successful collaboration between BayWa r.e. and the investment fund advised by Swiss firm SUSI Partners AG. In September, this investment fund acquired the British solar park, Pingewood, from BayWa r.e.
