This has almost trebled the total wind power output of the Kronprinzenkoog wind farm. In addition, the wind energy project is the first REpower wind farm to receive a system certificate in line with the German System Service Ordinance (SDLWindV).
Since the beginning of June, four REpower MM92 wind turbines (hub height 80 meters) and eleven REpower MM82 wind turbines (hub height 59 meters) have been erected and commissioned at the Kronprinzenkoog wind farm. Each of these 15 wind turbines has a rated output of 2.05 megawatts (MW).
Jens Müller-Nielsen, head of the Germany business unit at REpower: “Kronprinzenkoog is one of our biggest projects in Germany in the last few months. It is also a positive example of how to make optimum and efficient use of a region’s wind resources. Because of the distance regulations in force in Germany, only smaller areas are usually designated for wind farms. That is why there is great potential in business involving substitute facilities in this country in particular.”
Kronprinzenkoog is also the first REpower wind farm to receive a system certificate in line with the German System Service Ordinance and thus meet the high network requirements in Germany.
Müller-Nielsen: “We are proud to be pioneers in the industry once again with our double-fed system. The corresponding unit certificates were in place for all variants of the series back in April, which meant that the operators received all the necessary expert opinions for the wind farm quickly and smoothly – an important sign for our German business.”
