Subtitle: • 15 wind energy systems with a together 12 MW were constructed • Electricity for about 7,000 households

Cuxhaven (euro adhoc) - November 22, 2010 - The wind farm developer, PNE WIND AG (ISIN: DE000A0JBPG2), has completed the Oldendorf wind farm in Lower Saxony. 15 Enercon E53 wind energy systems with a total nominal output of 12 MW and an overall height of 100 metres were constructed in this wind farm.

A relatively long planning phase preceded the construction of this wind farm due to local circumstances. Because of PNE WIND AG´s expertise, it has now been possible to complete the project successfully with the complete construction of all 15 wind energy systems. After commissioning, the wind farm will be handed over to EnBW Erneuerbare Energien GmbH as the purchaser. As contractually agreed, PNE WIND AG will be responsible for its technical and commercial operation.

The wind energy systems constructed in Oldendorf wind farm can supply the annual electricity requirements of about 7,000 private households. At the same time, the wind farm makes a significant contribution to environmental protection because, due to the environmentally friendly production of electricity from wind, more than 14,000 tons of carbon dioxide and other pollutants will be avoided annually.

Martin Billhardt, Chairman of the PNE WIND AG Board of Directors says: "Patience was required in the construction of this wind farm. But our employees´ many years of experience in project development pays off in such situations. Thanks to their tireless commitment, we have succeeded in bringing this project to a successful conclusion."
