    Three wind parks add 84 MW to Austria's power generation capacity

    June 7, 2023 - SeeNews Renewables


      June 7 (Renewables Now) - Wind turbines with a combined capacity of more than 84 MW have been put into operation in eastern Austria recently.

      Energy company Wien Energie last week inaugurated a 27.6-MW wind park in the town of Trumau, Lower Austria. The facility consists of eight Vestas V117 turbines each of 3.45 MW which are expected to generate 51,000 MWh annually. The wind park is part of Austria's first hybrid green power plant. The site is home to a solar plant with a capacity of 9.7 MW and a projected annual production of 10,300 MWh.

      The combined output of the hybrid power plant corresponds to ten times the electricity consumption of all households in the Trumau municipality. As a result, the municipality is now able to meet its electricity demand with green energy and the excess electricity is fed into the power grid for the surrounding communities.

      The second project was implemented by oekostrom AG and involved the repowering of a wind farm from the early 2000s. The machines in the Parndorf wind park were replaced by seven new, more powerful Vestas wind turbines in the 4 MW class and the electricity output was significantly increased. The wind farm now delivers around 70 GWh, up from around 40 GWh generated before the repowering.

      In addition, renewables developers WEB Windenergie AG and Windkraft Simonsfeld AG last week inaugurated the expansion of the Duernkrut wind park in Lower Austria which added 28.3 MW to its capacity. Windkraft Simonsfeld installed three Nordex N 163 turbines each with a capacity of 5.7 MW while its partner erected two Vestas V162 machines with a combined capacity of 11.2 MW. The new turbines will produce clean electricity for more than 20,000 households every year.
