Seven turbines and 16.8 MW of installed capacity: Windpark Schimmendorf in the Upper Franconian district of Kulmbach is the largest wind farm built by GP JOULE in Bavaria.
In addition to the entire project planning, GP JOULE also took over construction management of the wind park in Schimmendorf as the general contractor under an EPC contract (Engineering – Procurement – Construction). The company provided all the necessary services here – in particular the entire range of engineering work, the procurement of all necessary building materials and components, installation on site and turnkey commissioning in February 2017.
Since then we have also been responsible for technical management: the seven installed turbines are controlled via two modern control rooms that can be accessed on a round-the-clock basis. GP JOULE tracks maintenance cycles and monitors the work on site. To complete the range of services, the company provides detailed reporting on the performance and profitability of the plant as well as online access to the customer portal for wind turbines.
Turbines made by the Rostock-based company Nordex are used at Windpark Schimmendorf.
"We’re particularly pleased with this project. It’s a key project for our business in southern Germany – and it very much reflects on our expertise to be entrusted with the entire construction and operation of such a plant: we really were able to contribute all our technical know-how here.”
Ove Petersen, Managing Director and founder of GP JOULE
