    MIBRAG seeks permit for 60-MW German onshore wind project

    May 17, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      May 17 (Renewables Now) - German mining and energy company Mitteldeutsche Braunkohlengesellschaft mbH (MIBRAG) has applied for a permit to install 10 wind turbines of the 6-MW class in the recultivation area of an opencast mine in the south of Saxony-Anhalt.

      The application for approval under the Federal Immission Control Act (BImSchG) was filed with the environmental office of Saxony-Anhalt on May 4, MIBRAG has said.

      Assuming a permit would be granted, construction work on the wind park Profen II should begin in the second quarter of 2023. Once fully operational in 2025, the wind farm is expected to produce around 160 GWh of clean power a year. This would be enough to supply 60,000 households or produce up to 3,200 tonnes of green hydrogen.

      The company will invest about EUR 70 million (USD 72.95m) in the implementation of the initiative.

      Initially, the electricity from Profen II will be fed into the public grid and later it will be used also for the production of green hydrogen.

      The project will contribute to achieving Saxony-Anhalt's expansion targets in renewable energy and support MIBRAG's transformation into a green energy supplier.

      In February, MIBRAG applied for a permit to build a 90-MW wind park in the recultivation area of ??the Vereinigtes Schleenhain opencast mine near Leipzig. The wind park should be commissioned in 2024.
