The Schleswig-Holstein project Groß Niendorf in the district of Segeberg consists of two modern GE 3.8-130 wind turbines, each with a rated power of 3.83 megawatts and a rotor diameter of 130 metres at 110 metres hub height. The wind farm feeds electricity into the medium-voltage grid via an existing transformer station operated by Schleswig-Holstein Netz AG.
The project development phase began far back in 2009, and at the end of 2018, after almost 10 years, WKN was able to put the Groß Niendorf wind energy project into operation after a construction period of only three months. The wind farm developed by WKN now supplies around 5,700 households in Schleswig-Holstein with environmentally friendly electricity.
For the Groß Niendorf project, WKN was awarded the seal "Fairer Windparkplaner Schleswig-Holstein" (seal for wind farm planners with fair practices). The seal honours wind farm planners who place particular value on fair planning and a high degree of transparency in their work. Essential criteria here are transparency in the planning process, fair handling of contracts, financial participation opportunities and regional support & value creation.
