In the latest German auction for onshore wind energy, RWE won two bids. Start of construction for both wind farms planned for 2021.
Evendorf wind farm, with an installed capacity of 11.7 megawatts (MW), was awarded by the German Federal Network Agency. The future wind park will be located next to the A7 motorway between Hanover and Hamburg. Three Nordex wind turbines with a capacity of 3.9 MW each will be installed. In addition, an extra turbine for RWE’s Krusemark repowering project in Saxony-Anhalt was awarded. During the course of this project, 15 old turbines will be dismantled and replaced by six 3.3-MW Nordex turbines. Five turbines were already successful in the auction in June. The sixth turbine received its permit, as expected, in August, making it eligible for the October auction. Planned installed capacity of Krusemark wind farm has thus been increased to 19.8 MW.
The tender volume was 825,527 kW and 89 bids were submitted with a volume of 768,950 kW. The tender for onshore wind energy with a bidding deadline of 1st October was almost exhausted. 74 bids with a bidding volume of 658,650 kW were awarded. The average, quantity-weighted award price was 6.11 ct/kWh.
