Windfarm Kaiserslautern: Plans are progressing

In Kaiserslautern, the ENOVA Group plans in cooperation with Thüga Erneuerbare Energien GmbH & Co. KG and SWK Stadtwerke Kaiserslautern Versorgungs-AG two wind turbines, each with a capacity of 3 megawatts. For this purpose, the company Stadtwerke Wind Kaiserslautern GmbH & Co. KG was founded in 2013, in which the cooperation partners each have a one-third share.
The development of the Kaiserslautern wind farm is progressing as planned. The permit application for the construction of a wind measuring tower was recently submitted. The wind measurement mast is used to measure the wind speed at various altitudes in m/s (meters per second) in order to estimate how much electric energy the plants will convert. The wind measurement is carried out for about one year and after completion of the measurement, the wind measuring mast is dismantled again.
According to previous results of the research on species protection, it is assumed that the wind farm can be operated without significant restrictions. “We see very good conditions and are confident that we will be able to finish the park in 2016,” says Dirk Warnecke, technical director at ENOVA and one of the managing directors of the operating company. The wind energy produced in the future is destined for the region and will supply approx. 4,400 households with green electricity.
