(SeeNews) - Dec 5, 2012 - German renewable energy company Thuega Erneuerbare Energien said today it bought two wind farms, thus expanding its wind power portfolio to 103 MW.
Thuega fully acquired the Nessa wind park with six turbines of the Enercon E-82 type.
In addition, it bought 74.9% of the Wangenheim/Hochheim wind farm, which has four Vestas V90 turbines and one Enercon E-82 turbine. The remaining stake is held by German project developer Boreas Energie GmbH.
Thuega's portfolio comprises 49 onshore wind parks in five German states. The plants supply nearly 240 million KWh of power annually.
Managing director Kay Dahlke believes that the onshore wind market has big potential.
Over 400 wind facilities with total capacity if about 1,000 MW were installed in Germany in the first half of 2012. About 90% of them were onshore plants, according to data from German renewable energy company Deutsche WindGuard.
