Start of construction work at Blasbach wind farm


After 10 years of planning and project development, preparations for the construction of two wind turbines by Koehler Renewable Energy at Wetzlar-Blasbach will start in mid-October.

Start of construction work at Blasbach wind farm

Koehler Renewable Energy has already been in close coordination with the city of Wetzlar since 2012 in order to jointly drive forward the realization of the wind turbines. For the city of Wetzlar, on whose land the wind farm is being built, the turbines are an important part of the city's climate protection concept. "With the realization of the first two of a total of five planned wind turbines in the city of Wetzlar, we are making considerable progress towards our goal of "climate neutrality by 2035"," says Norbert Kortlüke, head of the city's environment and mobility department. Mayor Manfred Wagner added: "Together with Koehler Renewable Energy, we are delighted that the patience and perseverance we have shown together are now bearing fruits."

Koehler Promise 2030 

For Koehler Renewable Energy, the construction of the wind turbines is also an important milestone in the company's history. On the one hand, this project marks the first wind turbines to be realized in Germany, and on the other hand, this investment represents another decisive step in the sustainability strategy of the entire Koehler Group. The company's goal is to generate more energy from renewable sources with its own plants than is needed for its own paper production by 2030. For this climate target, new ambitious framework conditions were set in 2020 to further drive the expansion of the Group's own renewable energy generation. With the planning and operation of the wind turbines in Blasbach, Koehler Renewable Energy is expanding its portfolio of plants. With this expertise, the Koehler Group as well as the city of Wetzlar is preparing for the challenges of climate change and successfully contributes to the energy transition in Germany. "We are very pleased that from this long and trusting cooperation with the city of Wetzlar, the wind farm can now actually be realized," says Nicolas Christoph, Division Manager Wind, Hydro and PV at Koehler Renewable Energy.

From mid-October, the first preparations for the construction of the two wind turbines in Blasbach will begin with the land clearing of the required areas. The turbines are scheduled to be operational by the end of 2023. Around 23,000 MWh of electricity will be produced, which corresponds to the annual electricity requirements of around 9,000 average 2-person households in Germany.
