ENOVA acquires another repowering project in Saxony-Anhalt
Bunderhee, 28.10.2021 ENOVA Value has acquired a wind farm in Saxony-Anhalt consisting of 8 wind turbines of the type NEG Micon NM1000/60 with 1.0 MW each from 2001. For ENOVA, this is the fourth repowering project acquired this year.
“With this project, we are pleased to be able to operate the second wind farm in eastern Germany. The sales process had a high degree of complexity, as we also acquired the leases for repowering with the old turbines. Thanks to the good and pragmatic cooperation with the sellers, we were able to successfully complete the transaction,” explains Björn Burau, team leader of Investment & Asset Management.
Currently, the course is being set for repowering in order to be able to build three new wind turbines of the 6MW class in the best case. “This would reduce the number of turbines to about one third and at the same time quadruple the energy yield,” adds David Szilagyi, team leader of project development.
The ENOVA group of companies, headquartered in East Frisia and with a branch office in Hamburg, has been developing, realising and managing wind farms in Germany since 1989. The service spectrum of the 50-strong family-owned company ranges from the initial project idea including realisation to wind farm management and service to repowering.
All competences flow together over four business areas in one life cycle. The foundation is project development & planning (EPC), which to date can point to 250 MW of successfully realised onshore projects and 1,500 MW of approved offshore projects.
This is complemented by technical and commercial management (TCM), which currently manages around 500 MW for its own and external wind farms across Germany and has launched a data-based asset management software on the market with the product e.live.
Another important component is the technical maintenance and servicing (ISP) of ENOVA Service GmbH. As an independent service provider and specialist for Enercon wind turbines, around 200 turbines from Enercon E-40 to E-82 are currently under contract.
Investment & Asset Management (IAM) rounds off the business areas. In the last four years, around 25 wind farms with a total capacity of around 150 MW were successfully acquired and have since been operated and further developed in a value-creating manner.
