Siemens Connects Wind Farm in Germany to Supply Network

Erlangen, Germany [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] The first construction phase of Germany’s large repowering project has begun operation: Siemens Power Transmission and Distribution (PTD) connected the Fehmarn Mitte wind farm to the 110-kV high-voltage system on the Schleswig-Holstein mainland of Northern Germany following modernization and upgrading of the farm’s capacity. This represents a large portion of Germany’s major wind power repowering project, which will ultimately have a total capacity of 130 MW (150 MVA). Next, 120 obsolescent wind turbines on Fehmarn are to be dismantled and replaced by about 70 new machines of higher capacity.
