    Wind park in Bavaria nears commissioning after long delay

    June 29, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      June 29 (Renewables Now) - A wind farm with a capacity of 24 MW is planned to go into operation in the state of Bavaria by August after a controversial planning and construction process that took about ten years.

      Located in the municipalities of Wargolshausen and Wuelfershausenhe, in southern Germany, the Weisser Turm wind park features ten Nordex N117-2.4 turbines erected by construction company Max Boegl.

      The project was launched in 2012 and the original plan was for 13 wind turbines but their number was reduced to ten following consultations with the municipalities.

      The approval for the project was granted in April 2014, but citizens' initiatives lodged complaints which were followed by lengthy legal procedures. The construction of the wind farm was also delayed by the introduction of the so-called 10H regulation in 2014 which states that the minimum distance between a wind turbine and the nearest house must be at least ten times its height.

      With its ten machines, the Weisser Turm wind farm proves that the energy transition in Bavaria is gaining momentum again, according to co-owner Stefan Boegl.

      The state must significantly accelerate wind power expansion in order to ensure the security of supply with green electricity after the deployment of new capacity almost came to a standstill, mainly due to the 10H regulation. In the first quarter of 2022, no wind turbines were commissioned in Bavaria while a year earlier, only two machines were put into operation.
