Swiss company EBL Wind Invest AG said on Tuesday it has acquired the 13.2-MW Winsen-Pattensen II wind farm in northwestern Germany from project developer Win Energie & Orbis.
The acquired asset is located in the district of Harburg, Lower Saxony state and is powered by four N131/3300 wind turbines by Germany’s Nordex (ETR:NDX1). The plant was developed and constructed by Win Energie & Orbis.
Following the transaction, EBL will take care of the plant’s commercial management, it said without providing the value of the deal. The wind farm is expected to generate more than 37 GWh of electricity per year, or enough to meet the demand of over 10,000 homes.
The investment marks EBL’s first wind farm acquisition in Lower Saxony. "The transaction thus represents an excellent geographic diversification of our existing portfolio," said Tobias Andrist, managing director of EBL.
The Swiss firm was set up at the end of 2016 and focuses on investment of wind parks in Germany.
