Trianel Erneuerbare Energien has commissioned the 17.25MW Buchenau wind farm in Hesse in Germany. The project was developed by ABO Wind and acquired by Trianel last August. It features five Vestas V126 3.45MW turbines with tip heights of 200 metres.
Trianel said ABO Wind will operate the wind farm, which is expected to feed some 46 million kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity a year to the grid.
Trianel has also acquired the 6MW Solarpark Uchtdorf photovoltaic plant in Tangerhutte in the German state of Saxony-Anhalt.
Developer Goldbeck Solar wrapped up installation of 22,464 modules at the 11-hectare site in December, Trianel said.
Solarpark Uchtdorf will receive a feed-in tariff of 8.91 euro cent per kWh and is expected to produce some 6 million kWh of electricity a year.
The power supplier said it will continue to cooperate with Goldbeck Solar on other PV projects.
Trianel Erneuerbare Energien executive Markus Hakes said: “With our latest projects we already accomplished more than half of our goal to operate at least 275MW of wind and solar plants across Germany by 2018.”
The company’s portfolio consists of 26MW of PV plants in Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt and six onshore wind farms in five German states totalling at 113MW.
