On time and kept to the budget the repowering action of the windmill-powered plant Sanden finished after five months of construction in January of this year. The old engine, a Vestas V-66, got replaced by a new Enercon E-92.
By repowering the annual energy output has nearly doubled. With a hub height of 85 m and a rotor diameter of 92 m the wind turbine generates an energy amount of approx 4.7 GWh/a. This supplies the energy requirement of more than 1100 households.
The repowered wind turbine is located in the industrial area of Weener in Ostfriesland.
