Wind Energy

Best Practise Contact

ABO Wind has already installed around 750 wind turbines with a total output of around 1,800 megawatts worldwide. 300 turbines were built in forest sites. This makes us the leading developer for this demanding task in environmentally sensitive areas. At ABO Wind, our various specialist departments work together to ensure that wind turbines are erected quickly and produce as much clean electricity as possible.

Expertise from many disciplines is required to plan a wind farm and connect it to the grid. At ABO Wind, our internal experts for planning, site and impact assessment, financing, civil and electrical engineering work hand in hand. The responsible project managers accompany the project from the first discussion with the landowners to commissioning. Each project manager coordinates the work of the specialist departments throughout the entire planning process and is personally available to all stakeholders.
