December 3 (Renewables Now) - The renewables arm of German energy group RWE AG (ETR:RWE) and the municipal utility in Kerpen, North Rhine-Westphalia, intend to jointly develop two wind projects with a combined capacity of 50 MW, it was announced on Friday.

The pair have signed a statement of intent that outlines plans for the wind farms, to be built on the Marienfeld field and along the A4 motorway.

Already having over 580 MW of installed onshore wind capacity in Germany, RWE is approaching its further expansion in the field by entering into local partnerships such as the one in Kerpen.

“Both partners have strong connections with the region and the town of Kerpen, so entering into the wind energy project in Kerpen together made a lot of sense. RWE has plenty of experience in building and operating wind farms in the district. The municipal utility has close links with the local residents and can take Kerpen forward by implementing these projects,” said Michael Kreusch, managing director of Kerpen municipal utility.
