RWE Starts Building Its Biggest Onshore German Wind Farm

RWE AG started work on the 70 million-euro ($96 million) first phase of a wind farm in western Germany, which is expected to be commissioned at the end of the year.

The 67-megawatt Koenigshovener Hoehe project in North Rhine-Westphalia will use 21 of Senvion SE’s 3.2 megawatt turbines, Essen-based RWE said earlier this week in a statement.

In February, RWE sold a 49 percent stake in the plant to the city of Bedburg. The wind farm is being built at the site of the Garzweiler open-cast strip mine.
