Commerz Real has bought a German wind farm project from Energiekontor.

The asset manager has paid an undisclosed sum for the Beckum wind energy park, a repowering project with two wind turbines of 4.5MWp each.

The Beckum wind farm is currently scheduled to go into operation at the end of October.

Jan-Peter Müller, head of infrastructure investments at Commerz Real, said: “Repowering and the more efficient use of wind power locations will become more and more important in the future in order to achieve the climate targets.

“This creates attractive investment opportunities for us and our investors.”

Peter Szabo, chairman of the board of Energiekontor, said: “The sale makes a significant contribution to the result for the second half of the year.”
