EnBW is also successfully engaged in expanding onshore wind power in its first selected European markets that have good prospects for renewable energies. In June 2019, it acquired “Groupe Valeco” based in Montpellier, France, which has now become the EnBW brand for renewable energies sourced from the wind and sun in France. Valeco is currently one of the top 10 players in the wind and solar sector in France and had around 430 MW of installed output from onshore wind power by the end of 2019.
EnBW has also successfully established itself on the onshore wind market in Sweden since it founded EnBW Sverige AB in 2018. Following the acquisition of seven wind farms in 2018 and the expansion of the portfolio in 2020, EnBW now has more than 100 MW of installed output in Sweden. Another wind farm with three turbines is currently under construction in Rammarehemmet.
We are also exploiting the potential for onshore wind power in Turkey, where we have already expanded our portfolio to more than 430 MW of output since 2009 together with our partner Borusan. After completion of the Saros and Kiyiköy projects by the end of 2020, the installed capacity of onshore wind power of Borusan EnBW Enerji will increase to nearly 650 megawatts.
