PNE has completed repowering a wind farm in north-west Germany, halving the number of turbines, but more than doubling its output, the developer claimed.

The Gerdau-Schwienau repowering project in Lower Saxony began in June 2018 and was completed by the end of the year, PNE stated. The developer dismantled, disposed and recycled the existing turbines and their foundations and other components in compliance with environmental regulations, it added. Roads and floor spaces required for cranes used during the construction phase have also been dismantled. Gerdau-Schwienau’s capacity has been increased from 16.25MW to 21.6MW, while its projected output has “roughly doubled”, the developer added.
