January 12 (Renewables Now) - German project developer Energiequelle GmbH has put a 10.5-MW wind park in the state of Brandenburg into operation which will supply green electricity to some 8,600 households.

Three Enercon E-138 wind turbines with a nominal output of 3.5 MW each and a hub height of 131 metres (429.8 feet) have been built in the Dahme-Spreewald district in eastern Germany and boost the existing wind park to 115 turbines, Energiequelle said on Tuesday.

The project developer received the order for the installation of the turbines in February 2020.

Τhe five municipalities surrounding the wind farm will receive a financial contribution of EUR 10,000 (USD 11,335) per turbine proportional to the area for each year of operation.

In 2021, Energiequelle put eight wind and solar parks online and got the green light to install a further 315 MW. The company is working on the construction of a 28.5-MW onshore wind park in Finland and in December, it sold a 15-MW wind farm in France, which was switched on in the summer, to Swiss renewable energy company EKZ Renewables AG.
