The wind farm on the Knip­pen in the nor­the­ast of the town of Freu­den­berg con­sists of three tur­bi­nes of the type N117‑2.4MW from the manu­fac­tu­rer Nordex.

Our pro­ject imple­men­ta­ti­on sche­du­le was post­po­ned seve­ral times due to a lawsu­it filed by a local resi­dent. Nevert­hel­ess, manu­fac­tu­r­ers, land owners, par­ti­ci­pa­ting com­pa­nies and we belie­ved in the suc­cess of the pro­ject and stuck to the Knip­pen wind farm.

The delay signi­fi­cant­ly increased expen­ses for unfo­re­seen addi­tio­nal cos­ts, so that the bud­get could not be kept. Through the coope­ra­ti­on of the main land owner as well as the manu­fac­tu­rer, fixed cos­ts could be redu­ced and thus the Knip­pen wind farm could be realized.

With the goal of theo­re­ti­cal­ly being able to sup­p­ly the enti­re popu­la­ti­on of the town Freu­den­berg with green and clean elec­tri­ci­ty with the three wind tur­bi­nes, the pro­ject ulti­m­ate­ly did suc­cessful­ly go into ope­ra­ti­on in July 2018.
