Project development comprises the entire process for the creation of a wind farm. From the first idea for the project to its realisation and the commissioning of the turbines, we guide the project through all its phases – at our own risk and using a holistic approach. Our continuous project management ensures that the project proceeds swiftly.
Every project is unique but our technical departments master the various challenges – managed by the project manager. We have the right answer ready for any situation because our teams consist of specialists who bring their considerable experience to bear in supporting each one of the 11 steps in the project.
1 | Site evaluation
Our engineers identify the best locations for wind farms.
2 | Securing under private law
Suitable locations are secured by means of purchase or lease agreements with the property owners.
3 | Species conservation studies
Review and evaluation of possible effects on fauna and flora.
4 | Determining potential of wind
We conduct our own, high-quality wind measurements in order to determine the exact potential of the wind and to calculate the potential yield professionally.
5 | Technical planning / Micro-siting
Specialists work out the best possible configuration of the wind farm drawing on a variety of parameters.
6 | Construction planning / Approval process
We conduct all the surveys, produce the necessary documentation and accompany the entire process until final approval.
7 | Grid connection planning
Working with the operator of the grid, our electrical engineers draw up the best concept for connecting to the grid.
8 | Business concept / Finance
For the business concept, the project is configured in accordance with the banks' requirements in order to guarantee finance for the project. The aim is to produce a financially viable, saleable project for a potential buyer or for in-house operation.
9 | Purchase of turbines
Planning and carrying out the purchase of turbines in close coordination with our developers.
10 | Project construction / Implementation
Our construction engineers provide support in all phases of the construction process, thereby guaranteeing that the wind farm will be reliably built.
11 | Compensating measures
Our in-house landscape planning department enables compensation measures to be offered from a single source.
