Qualitas Energy’s local subsidiary has successfully acquired three wind farms in Germany as part of its strategic plan to expand its portfolio to 6GW within a two-year timeframe.
These sites collectively generate a total output of 21MW and house a total of 11 turbines.
In order to significantly enhance the power generation capabilities of all three facilities, Qualitas Energy intends to revamp the existing turbines.
These wind farms are situated in Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia. This acquisition aligns with the investment strategy of Q-Energy Fund V, which has already reached a first closing amounting to over €1.1bn.
It is expected that the fund’s overall size will surpass €1.6bn, establishing it as one of Europe’s largest renewable energy funds.
Among the wind farms acquired, one of them is Dornstedt 2, located in Teutschenthal within the Saalekreis district of Saxony-Anhalt. This particular wind farm comprises three turbines, each with a capacity of 2MW. Similarly, Quenstedt 2, situated in Arnstein within the Mansfeld-Südharz district, possesses an equal capacity and number of turbines.
The third site, located a short distance south in Heldrungen within the Kyffhäuser district of Thuringia, consists of five wind turbines, each with an output of 1.8MW.
Niklas Hinz, Qualitas Energy Deutschland GmbH director of investment, said “We are facing a significant task with the energy transition.”
“Germany has been a major driver of wind energy and it is now up to us to successfully operate or modernize the wind farms to ensure the success of the energy transition.”
“With this vision, we will continue to acquire repowering and greenfield projects in the future to bring them to success in close cooperation with residents and communities.”
