In addition to the headquarters in Husum, the WKN is now represented with branches and joint ventures in various countries in Europe and South Africa. After its founding in 1990, the WKN continuously expanded into foreign markets.
Today about 150 employees at nine locations, in six countries and two continents work together on the realization of worldwide wind projects. Despite different languages, cultures and countries of origin, all WKN employees share the same vision: a 100% renewable energy supply. We shape the future and promote the energy revolution.
"I have been working for WKN for 17 years; for 12 years in the area of Sales/Due Diligence. The experienced, long-standing employees of WKN and PNE ensure reliability in the processes. Often, the transaction teams are a colourful mixture of people from various cultural backgrounds. Above all, it is this goal-oriented and close cooperation beyond national borders that I enjoy."
Corinna Pauschardt (Sales)
“As a vocation, I started to work for the wind energy in 2004, at the early age of the wind development in France. Today, after 9 years working for WKN France, I can say I’m very glad to do my best for the construction of wind farms within a strong and human-size company.“
Benoît Mentrel (Great West Grid & Construction at WKN France)
In Sweden we have great activists working for a climate change, one single person can’t do everything but everybody can do something. I feel great comfort in working at the WKN group within renewables doing whatever I can to improve our climate situation of the world. That is something I bring further to my children, and I am proud of it.
Ann-Sofi Laurin (Project Development at VKS)
"I have been working for WKN for 21 years and am responsible for the contractual arrangements for the properties in any type of use. For me, sustainability means being able to deal well with each of our partners even after the contract has been signed. I think that's what defines us all at WKN."
Stephan Eidinger (Head of Site Securement)
"Being a project manager is a lot about working as a team, taking up challenges and establishing contacts with a lot of different people. What I like the most about WKN is the capacity of the company to encourage training and knowledge sharing between employees, which is a very effective way to improve the quality of our daily work."
