RWE AG (ETR:RWE) is planning to develop a project for a 28.5-MW wind park in the state of Rhineland-Palatinate which is expected to go online at the end of 2026.
The German power major said in a press statement that it has signed a contract on the project with the municipalities of Schleid and Bickendorf where the wind farm will be located.
The Heilenbach wind farm will consist of five turbines which are expected to be capable of covering the annual power consumption of 22,000 households.
In the coming months, RWE will launch the mapping work and the approval process.
The investment costs in the project are estimated at more than EUR 30 million (USD 30.59m).
The Essen-based energy group operates onshore wind parks with an installed capacity of 545 MW across Germany. In a push to expand its operations in the home market, RWE has opened seven regional offices since the start of the year, including one in Rhineland-Palatinate's state capital Mainz.
