You are here: Your Project > Project partners
Regardless of what the status of your project is: from the mere idea, via projects in their early approval stages to new turnkey systems or existing systems suitable for repowering - for us all wind power projects are of interest. We cooperate with partners in order to realise the projects together, and maintain friendly relationships with all concerned. We often mediate in conflict situations and contribute towards finding good solutions where wind power is the winner. Working with wpd is on an equal footing and is equally appreciated by medium-sized project developers and one-man bands.
Our partners have excellent local contacts in their respective regions and possess specific local planning know-how, while wpd is confident in leading the negotiations with local land-owners. In some cases our employees have had managerial positions in the sector for almost twenty years, and they have access to extensive, high-quality networks. Some business relationships have existed for more than a decade. Thanks to these good relationships with well-known manufacturers, banks and construction companies, a short chain of command, flat hierarchies and experienced staff, and also thanks to our expert construction and electrical planning departments, we are able to raise the finance for projects in the shortest of timeframes and to start construction.
Together even complicated projects can be realised
Because the market and framework conditions are changing ever faster, the acceptance for wind farms is falling and the risk of being taken to court is rising - this situation therefore placing ever greater demands on expert reports and planning, making them more expensive - an increasing number of projects are threatened with closure. We have solutions for the majority of such difficult cases as our diverse experience abroad has taught us to design safe financing packages under tough conditions. The fact that wpd is able to tackle numerous tasks with in-house resources, keeps the costs down. As we also act as operators, we are able to minimise the running costs. Our experience as an investor and our capital strength constitute further benefits. With regard to all relevant legal questions, we have been working closely with experienced lawyers for a long time, and we finance the planning periods which are becoming longer and longer, assume the risks to the project which can be very well estimated by our experienced team and thereby help to bring projects to a reliable conclusion. We make our expertise available in all phases of the project and are also able to cope with the demands of tenders as we concerned ourselves with the subject at an early stage, and for example, we took care of the direct marketing for our project on the factory site of car-maker BMW.
