innogy has commissioned the Nordex Group to equip the Jüchen A44n wind farm with six N149/4.0-4.5 turbines, all with hub heights of 164 metres. The Jüchen A44n wind farm will be built next to the A44 motorway on around 90 hectares of recultivated land formerly used by the Garzweiler open cast lignite mining site, located to the south of the town of Jüchen in North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany.
The wind farm will be run as part of a partnership between innogy and NEW Re, a subsidiary of the municipal service company NEW in the area of regenerative projects. The co-operation was successful in the German auction for onshore wind turbines at the beginning of 2020 and therefore awarded the contract from the Federal Grid Agency for a firm electricity feed-in tariff to operate the 27 MW wind farm. Construction started in April and the wind farm will begin operation one year later. In October 2018, innogy and the Nordex Group agreed on a strategic partnership with a view to promoting future growth with onshore wind projects. The wind farm Jüchen A44n is the first German project to be implemented as part of this partnership.
