Individual performance packages in operational management: Enova takes over the project development and operations management for another 40 MW in Emsland

ENOVA continues to expand its presence in Emsland. Together with the wind turbines built from 2001 to 2004, ENOVA projected and built 66 megawatts of wind energy capacity in Emsland. Last summer, the Börger Ohe 1 wind farm was successfully put into operation. After a construction period of just under nine months, the company from the East Frisian town of Bunderhee completed four ENERCON E-115 plants on schedule and on budget. Since then, the 3 MW wind turbines with a hub height of 149 m and a rotor diameter of 115 m deliver an energy yield of approx. 31 GWh / a and thus cover the annual energy requirement of more than 9,000 households. “ENOVA acted as the general contractor and we are therefore all the more pleased that the implementation of the wind farm has proceeded so smoothly and also in terms of nature conservation. For the first time, we successfully placed public participation in this project in the form of crowdfunding directly via our Internet platform “, explain Managing Directors Hauke Brümmer and Dirk Warnecke.

Two more windfarms in construction

For the wind farms Börger Ohe 2 and Breddenberg-Ohe the permits according to the Federal Immission Control Act were obtained at the end of last year and the parks are currently under construction. Initial construction measures such as access roads and foundations for the nine wind turbines have already been started. In the summer of this year, ENOVA plans to commission the turbines with a rated output of 3.2 MW and a hub height of 149 m in Börger and 122 m in Breddenberg. In these wind farms too, project planning is carried out by ENOVA as the general contractor. With the completion of the substation “Börger Nord”, also planned by ENOVA, in December 2016, the integration of the wind farms into the electricity grid is secured.

Wind farm management for optimal operation and maximum yield

The family-owned company ENOVA has been active in the field of renewable energies since 1989 and is one of the pioneers in the industry. In the future, she will provide her high level of competence in the technical management and commercial management of wind turbines to the wind farms in Börger and Breddenberg.

“For more than 20 years, we have provided business and management services to our customers. We want to offer this experience to further interested parties in the future. “, Says Ralf Brinkema, Head of techn. Management. The new ENOVA concept offers customized customer-specific support for wind farms.

To emphasize is the need-based compilation by means of ENOVA service packages and modules:

A small, smart package that only includes services that are necessary for maximum energy output. A “save package” that secures the operator and in which, above all, services in the area of occupational safety or plant inspections are taken over. And last but not least, various extra services that help the customer to make the operation of the wind farm as simple and transparent as possible. Brinkema: “With these service packages, we can map every individual customer request, and at attractive conditions.”

Public participation is successfully placed – thank you for relying on green power

The full placement of the public participation for windfarm Börger Ohe 1 brought a successful year-end closing 2016. Through this public participation initiated by ENOVA many citizens bring a wind of change into lower Saxon Emsland and invest in a green future. Over 60 investors settled their trust in ENOVA and partly financed the Börger Ohe 1 wind farm with 400.000€.
Since the second quarter of the last year the wind farm feeds-in its generated energy already.

For this pleasant reason we would like to offer you a further public participation in March this year. For more information, please visit our website www.buergerbeteiligungen.enova.de

Pleasant year-end closing – approval obtained for a repowering project in Weener

Just in time dor the end of 2016, the administrative district of Leer has approved the repowering project according to the Bundesimmisionsschutzgesetz (BImSchG).

On 22 December 2016 the licensing procedure was completed and positively approved by the county’s emission control authority. ENOVA Energieanlagen GmbH was commissioned by Hebu Windkraft GmbH & Co. KG to plan and implement the repowering of the old Vestas 66 plant in the industrial area of Weener. The old plant of the Danish wind turbine manufacturer Vestas will be replaced by a more efficient new Enercon E-92 system. With a hub height of 85 m and a rotor diameter of 92 m, the rated output can be increased from 1.65 MW to 2.35 MW.  Concurrent with the start of 2017 the foundation construction and the installation of improvements can be started. This year, commissioning is planned.

For ENOVA this is already the second repowering of a wind turbine in the industrial area of Weener. In the immediate vicinity, ENOVA has at the end of 2015 put into operation an Enercon E101 for the Klingele paper mill.

Construction is progressing in Börger

Pleasing news for ENOVA: By the end of 2016 the permits were obtained according to the Federal Immission Control Act for the wind parks Börger Ohe 2 und Breddenberg Ohe.

In addition, the related substation Börger Nord was put into operation in December 2016 with a nominal output of 50 MVA.

For the projects Börger Ohe 2 and Breddenberg Ohe in Emsland planned by ENOVA, the permits were obtained on 23.11.2016 and 15.12.2016 according to the Federal Immission Control Act. Earlier this year, ENOVA had submitted the Federal Immission Control Act applications to the Emsland district.

The wind parks comprise nine wind turbines type E-115 form the manufacturer Enercon placed in the municipalities Börger and Breddenberg, close to the wind park Börger Ohe 1. At the present time, the first construction measures were started, with regard to the access routes and foundation construction of the wind turbines.

In summer 2017, ENOVA is planning the commissioning of these nine wind plants with a respective output of 3 MW and a hub height of 149m in Börger and 122m in Breddenberg.  The completion of the Börger Nord substation in December 2016 ensures the integration of the wind energy into the power grid.  The energy generated in future equals 10 billion battery charges of a commercial smartphone.

In the future, the family-owned company ENOVA will also take over the technical and commercial management of the wind turbines. With our many years of know-how in the field of regenerative energies, we guarantee you successful operation over the entire duration of your wind energy installation.

After successfully placing the public participation for the project Börger Ohe 1 this year, the citizens of the neighbouring regions will again be given the opportunity to participate in the wind farm project Breddenberg Ohe. The project will be published in February on the website buergerbetiligung.enova.de. Also remarkable is, that ENOVA works due to the project Börger Ohe 2 as general contractor for two local partnerships.


Construction phase for 2 wind turbines of the type Enercon E82 is commissioned. Enova acts as a service provider for the Stadtwerke Neuss.

The approval was already given in January 2015. However, the approval was legally fought against by a citizens group. Only in the second instance and one-and-a-half-year duration of proceedings the approval was feasible in the obtained form. Without further delay the execution planning and the appropriate construction execution started.

Current state: access road is constructed. Fundament pit and fundaments are built. Crane assembling for the tower building is planned for KW 40.

Until then the civil engineering measures will be finished. The laying of the cable route will happen parallel to the construction of the wind turbine.

The goal to put into operation with both wind turbines at the end of the year is ensured according to the current planning stage ENOVA is in charge of the surveillance of all construction end the appropriate interface management.


E112 Nearshore – ENOVA received order for approval planning.

Within the scope of a service for the nearshore WEA Enercon E112 in Emden, ENOVA was commissioned with the approval planning for the provision of a crane pontoon on the water side and corresponding preparatory measures.

As ENOVA was already in charge of planning the approval as part of the construction of the WEA subject of the application, the available services were used for the approval planning of the upcoming service on the existing know-how of ENOVA.

All the requisite applications and all the necessary authorizations have been duly obtained, despite the tight schedule, thanks to ENOVA’s experience and close contact with the parties involved in the procedure.

Meanwhile, the service intervention on the wind turbine has been successfully realized.

Commisioning Börger Ohe 1

In June of this year, the project Börger Ohe 1 was successfully put into operation. After almost nine months of construction, the ENERCON E115 plant was completed on schedule and on budget.

With a hub height of 149 m and a rotor diameter of 115 m we supply the 3MW wind turbines with an energy amount of approx. 31 GWh/a and cover the annual energy requirement of more than 9000 households. The facilities are located between the towns of Börger and Breddenberg in Emsland.
