October 19 (Renewables Now) - The German subsidiarity of French energy group Engie SA (EPA:ENGI) has secured two projects to repower 50 MW of older onshore wind parks in the states of Brandenburg and North Rhine-Westphalia as part of the September tender of the Federal Network Agency.

The first project includes the replacement of 20 old turbines with a combined capacity of 26 MW in the municipality of Karstaedt, Brandenburg, with seven turbines totalling 39.2 MW, Engie Deutschland said on Monday. The company has been operating the wind park since 2001.

The other project concerns a 10.4-MW wind farm in Loevenich, North Rhine-Westphalia where Engie will replace four of the eight AN BONUS-/Siemens turbines each of 1.3 MW with two new turbines of 5 MW each.

The two repowering projects received permits under the German Federal Immission Control Act in July and early preparatory works will be launched in 2021.

Engie Deutschland operates 13 wind farms across Germany, develops wind and solar projects and has a direct marketing portfolio of 3.5 GW.
