BImSchG Permits Received: PNE Further Expands Own Generation Portfolio With Wind Farms in Schleswig-Holstein

Cuxhaven, Germany - PNE has received the permits for the construction and operation of two onshore wind projects in accordance with the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG). This means that the PNE Group has the green light for the installation of wind power turbines with a total output of 34.5 MW at two sites in Schleswig-Holstein.

The site of the larger project with a total output of 28.5 MW is located in the municipality of Lütau in the district of Lauenburg. A wind farm with five Nordex N 149 wind turbines, each with a nominal turbine output of 5.7 MW, is to be built here.

The second licence relates to the expansion of the Stuvenborn wind farm in the district of Segeberg. The installation of a 6 MW Vestas V150 turbine is planned near the municipality of the same name. At the end of January 2023, PNE already commissioned two turbines on neighbouring sites. Together with the third turbine, the Stuvenborn wind farm has a capacity of 16.2 MW.

In the year 2023, PNE received permits for renewable energy projects with a total capacity of 162 MW in Germany.

"We are very pleased with the permits we have been granted. We are planning to include both wind farms in our own generation portfolio," says Markus Lesser, CEO of PNE AG. "This means that we are continuing to expand our portfolio. We are well on track to achieving our strategic goal for 2027," says PNE CEO Markus Lesser. Following this, PNE intends to have wind farms and photovoltaic systems for own operation with a total output of 1,500 MW/MWp under construction or in operation.

The own-generation portfolio of the PNE Group currently comprises wind farms with an output of around 370 MW. Further wind farms with a capacity of 281.3 MW, which are intended for own generation, are in the construction phase.
