EnBW Delays Wind Farm ‘Hohe See’, Windreich AG Benefits With Higher Yields From Wind Farm ‘Global Tech I’

Windreich AG’s professional project planning is now paying off even further. Wind shadowing effects stemming from the wind farm “Hohe See” belonging to Energie Baden-Wurttemberg (EnBW) that would affect the wind farm “Global Tech I” (GT I) are absent; wind flow remains laminary and reaches GT I wind turbines unabated. With their GT I project, Windreich AG are about to start generating power for the first time by spring 2013. The wind farm is slated for maximum output by the end of 2013. This is the second positive announcement about GT I during the last two weeks. On 6/11/2012, Handelsblatt reported about the early grid connection of Global Tech I. It can now be considered proven that GT I rightfully ranks first in the list of the best offshore wind farms. Two other Windreich projects, “MEG I” and “Deutsche Bucht”, also ranked among the Top Ten.

The EnBW wind farm “Hohe See” with its 500MW was to be constructed 90km off Cuxhaven. The giant wind turbines would be partially located within the prevailing wind direction of GT I. However, wind shading effects and therefore lower profits were included in the calculations that served as the basis for the financing of GT I. Due to construction delays of the EnBW wind farm amounting to several years, the absence of wind shading effects causes a 4% increase in return for GT I. Projected electricity sales of €330 million a year will increase by approximately €13 million.

Our recipe for success: Begin earlier than others, work faster and more accurately to secure reliable and high

profits! This is how the energy transition works.”
