Qualitas Energy Group commissions Gersweiler wind farm through DunoAir Windpark Planung GmbH
Qualitas Energy, a global investment and management platform focused on renewable energy, energy transition, and sustainable infrastructure investment, announces the successful commissioning of the Gersweiler wind farm through DunoAir Windpark Planung GmbH, as part of the Qualitas Energy Group. The wind farm, located in the Saarland region of Germany, consists of two state-of-the-art wind turbines, and represents a further milestone in the company’s journey towards a decarbonized economy.
The Gersweiler wind farm features cutting-edge technologies, including an Enercon E-138 EP3 turbine with a 4.2 MW capacity and an Enercon E-160 EP5 turbine with a 5.56 MW capacity. Together, they contribute to a total output of 9.76 MW of clean, renewable energy, providing electricity to approximately 7,400 households.
In line with Qualitas Energy’s commitment to environmental responsibility, the Gersweiler wind farm is projected to result in an annual reduction of 10,780 tons of CO2 emissions, making a substantial contribution to combatting climate change.
Environmental responsibility remains also a top priority for DunoAir Windpark Planung GmbH as part of the Qualitas Energy Group. Within the course of the project development, approximately 1.1 hectares of forest area have been permanently transformed. However, the company is dedicated to implementing high-quality offset measures, fully compensating for this impact through reforestation efforts in the Krughütte and Gersweiler areas. This not only neutralizes the ecological impact but also contributes to enhancing the overall quality of the affected landscape, creating an ecological surplus.
“Following the reception of regulatory approvals in April 2022, the construction of the wind park began in the summer of 2022. Thanks to diligent planning and execution, both turbines have now been connected to the grid and are fully operational, further strengthening Germany’s renewable energy capacity. This is an important milestone in our commitment to renewable energy and sustainable development,” said Christiane Würtz, Project Manager at DunoAir Windpark Planung GmbH.
Borja Caruana, Managing Director of Qualitas Energy Deutschland GmbH, stated, “The successful operation of the Gersweiler wind farm aligns perfectly with our business strategy, as we continue to invest ambitiously in renewable energy projects and lead them to success either alone or in cooperation with local partners to drive the transition towards a greener future.”
