Lauperath – Construction Begins

Lauperath – Construction Begins

Located at Lauperath/Eifel, vortex energy deutschland GmbH commissioned the construction of an Enercon E-101 wind turbine with a hub height of 135,4 meters and a nominal capacity of 3.05 MW which supplies sufficient electricity for roughly 2500 households per year. This turbine marks two important innovations for vortex energy. On the one hand, it is the first cooperation between Enercon and vortex energy. On the other hand, after successful commissioning, vortex energy deutschland GmbH is going to take over technical operations and wind turbine management for the first time in Germany. Based on extensive long-term experience with our 146 MW Polish wind farms, we are perfectly suited to this.

The hilly landscape of the Eifel is a real challenge for construction work but vortex energy already gathered many experience and know-how in this area (Eisenach/Eifel), which we will effectively use for this project. The start of operation is scheduled for the beginning of 2014.
