Two Enercon E-138 turbines with a total output of 7 MW installed
Großrössen, 11 November 2020. At the end of October, Energiequelle GmbH successfully commissioned two wind turbines in the Falkenberg municipality in Großrössen, southern Brandenburg. The two E-138 Enercon turbines have a total output of 7 MW and supplement the E-115 turbine already built by Energiequelle in 2017 in the local wind farm.
The project has been in the planning phase since 2012. However, a lawsuit in the first phase of construction as well as a reapproval made implementation difficult. In addition, a solution for the nearby air base in Holzdorf had to be found with the Bundeswehr in order not to disturb the radar. With the Flight Manager, the wind turbines can be switched off as required. This means that regulated flight operation is still possible.
“I am pleased that we were able to successfully implement the project due to the successful cooperation with the Bundeswehr, the local agricultural cooperatives and the municipality,” says Gabriele Perlow, Energiequelle Project Manager.
Energiequelle GmbH is investing EUR 40,000 in its foundation in connection with the wind farm. Falkenberg Municipality can call up those funds for social purposes.
With the commissioning of the two E-138 wind turbines, the total output of the Großrössen wind farm amounts to 10 MW in total. Another turbine is to follow by mid-2023.
