We do not only operate onshore wind farms in Baden-Württemberg but now operate them throughout Germany. We had wind power plants with a total capacity of 270 megawatts in operation by 2016. A further 16 wind farms with a capacity of around 200 megawatts will be added to the grid in 2017. Our staff at the project development offices in Hamburg, Berlin, Erfurt, Trier and Stuttgart are working on these projects. It is due to these wind farms, which were approved in 2016, that we have risen to become one of the leading project developers for the first time. In order to maintain this progress, we are continuing to search for new sites and also aiming to further expand our cooperation with other project developers.
We have also identified potential for onshore wind power in Turkey, where we have already realised the “Bandirma” and “Balabanli” wind farms with our partner Borusan since 2009. The "Balabanli” wind farm was expanded to include three additional turbines in early 2017. The capacity of the wind farm has thus been increased to 60.5 MW.
