Vattenfall targets Europe's largest wind turbine market

Swedish utility Vattenfall enters partnership with German developer to multiply its somewhat minimal onshore capacity in the country to fifteen times its size by 2020.

In 1987, Germany's first wind farm, Westküste, became operational. At the time, it was made up of 30 turbines with total capacity of 1,000 kW. Now, the farm, which is owned by E.on and Vattenfall, is down to four turbines of 7.4 MW.

Vattenfall has entered a partnership with the German project developer ABO Wind. The energy company will via this partnership expand its presence on the German onshore wind turbine market up to 200 MW ahead of 2020.

This corresponds to fifteen times as much as the company's current capacity in Germany, writes Vattenfall in a statement.
