Here we go!: The first construction work of the wind farm Düddingen in the district of Wesermarsch began on schedule in mid-march. The four older NEG Micon NM 1500-64 wind turbines from 2000 will be repowered by four new Enercon E-70 E4 wind turbines, each with a power output of 2.3 MW. The expected commissioning of the new plants is scheduled for the third quarter of 2018.
With a hub height of 64 meters and a rotor diameter of 71 meters, the new wind turbines reach a total height of approx. 100 meters. They will produce more than 15,142,000 kWh of electricity per year. This is enough to supply just under 4000 households with renewable energy and save 9000 tons of CO2.
