Energiekontor AG announces the sale of a wind turbine in Jülich Ost, northwest of the Garzweiler opencast mine in North Rhine-Westphalia. The wind turbine was sold to a project company of NEW Re GmbH, which in turn is a subsidiary of NEW AG for renewable energies. NEW AG is a municipal utility company with strong roots in the Lower Rhine.

The Nordex N149 wind turbine in Jülich Ost has a hub height of 125 meters and a nominal output of 4.5 MW. Construction work has already started and commissioning is scheduled for the end of the first quarter of 2022.

The wind turbine is expected to generate around 11 GWh of electricity annually; this covers the electricity needs of around 4,500 average German households.

Peter Szabo, CEO of Energiekontor AG, is satisfied: “With NEW, another municipal utility is increasingly relying on renewable energies in its electricity mix. It is important that in NRW, the economically strongest federal state, the expansion of renewable energies is promoted by such partners. They help us to get closer to our vision of 100% renewable energies.

We look forward to making our electricity mix even more climate-friendly with the Jülich Ost wind turbine. As NEW, we would like to help shape the structural change in the Rheinische Revier, the use of the areas for regenerative energies is essential ”, says NEW board member Thomas Bley.

We look forward to working with Energiekontor in the future - a reliable partner with over 30 years of experience. As NEW Re GmbH it is our goal to expand the renewable energy generation share with the help of various projects and to combine it with positive economic effects for the region ”, says Michael Theisejans, managing director of NEW Re GmbH.
