Company Information

Subtitle: •	“Kemberg II” wind farm fully constructed and operational
•	Five wind energy systems with a nominal output of 10 MW installed

Cuxhaven (euro adhoc) - Karlsruhe / Cuxhaven, April 4, 2012 - PNE WIND AG sold
the "Kemberg II" wind farm with five wind energy systems with a nominal output
of 10 MW to EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg.

The wind farm project developer, PNE WIND AG has completed the construction of
the "Kemberg II" wind farm in Saxony-Anhalt. Five Vestas V90 wind energy systems
with a nominal output totalling 10 MW and an overall height of 150 metres have
been constructed and are already in operation. After commissioning, the wind
farm can therefore be handed over in turnkey condition to the purchaser, EnBW
Erneuerbare Energien GmbH. PNE WIND AG will continue to be responsible for the
technical and commercial operation of "Kemberg II".

The "Kemberg II" wind farm replaces five wind energy systems, which had been
decommissioned. This makes it a repowering project - i.e. a replacement of older
wind energy systems by more modern and more efficient ones. In addition, this
project rationalises the large Kemberg wind field by occupying free space in the
existing suitable planning area.

The wind energy systems constructed in the "Kemberg II" wind farm can satisfy
the annual electricity requirements of about 6,300 average private households.
At the same time, the systems make a significant contribution to the protection
of the environment because environmentally friendly production of electricity
from wind saves over 17,000 tons of carbon dioxide and other harmful substances

Stefan Thiele, Spokesperson for the Managing Board of EnBW Erneuerbare Energien
GmbH highlighted: "ENBW has continually expanded its onshore wind portfolio over
the past few years and with the completion of the Kemberg project our portfolio
is now six times bigger today.  We will continue to view our partnerships with
project developers as a key ingredient to achieve our ambitious growth targets."

Martin Billhardt, Chairman of the Board of Directors of PNE WIND AG, comments:
"With the completion of the Kemberg II wind farm we have realised one of our
many projects in Germany. Once again we have successfully completed another
repowering project. We will continue to follow this path and also drive forward
our foreign and offshore wind farm projects rapidly." 


PNE WIND AG, which is headquartered in Cuxhaven, plans and implements wind farm
projects on land (onshore) and at high sea (offshore). Core competencies are in
the development, planning, implementation and financing of wind farms, as well
as their operation and sales with associated service. So far, the company has
installed 98 wind farms with 568 wind power plants and a total capacity of 814

Besides business activities in the established German domestic market, PNE WIND
AG is increasingly expanding into dynamic growth markets and is already
represented through joint ventures and subsidiaries in Hungary, Bulgaria,
Romania, Turkey, United Kingdom, USA and Canada. In these countries, wind farm
projects with a capacity of up to 3,725 MW are currently being implemented for
the medium term. In Germany (onshore) wind farm projects with a nominal capacity
of more than 1,100 MW are currently in progress.

Furthermore, PNE Wind AG develops offshore wind farm projects, of which four
major projects in German waters have already been approved. Entry into promising
foreign markets will also be examined for the offshore area.
