The highlight in the Rheiderland
Since December 2015, it has been the highest wind energy plant in the Rheiderland: the ENERCON E-101 in the Weener Industrial Park. After weather-related delays, it was solemnly put into operation by the wind energy project planning team and the client, Klingele Windkraft GmbH. Since 2013, preparations have been made for the repowering of the Nordex N52 wind turbine on the industrial site of Klingele-Papierwerke. 135 meters hub height, 101 meters rotor length, 3050 kW power – these are the specifications of the E-101. Thanks to repowering, the new wind turbine now produces around 9 million kWh / a, about nine times as much as the old Nordex N54. “The new plant will produce an annual energy yield of around 9 million kW / a,” says Hendrik Stalljann, project manager at ENOVA. Around ten percent of the electricity needs of the Klingele paper mill could theoretically cover the ENERCON E-101.
