NeXtWind, a portfolio company of Sandbrook Capital, has acquired 10 wind farms from Qualitas Energy Deutschland, a renewable energy developer in Germany, with a total of over 60 wind turbines in Brandenburg, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Saarland, Saxony and Saxony-Anhalt.

NeXtWind will repower its wind turbines (replace old ones with the latest generation of modern wind turbines) and triple the energy generated on the sites. The renewed turbines will be able to supply up to 400,000 households with green energy and save over one million tonnes of CO2 per year.

“Our path is clearly focused on building a green, independent energy supplier in Germany,” says Werner Süss, co-CEO of NeXtWind. “Repowering established wind energy sites is the starting point for us to generate green and base load-capable energy. In the long-term, the wind farms in our portfolio are suitable for combination with photovoltaic systems and batteries for intermediate storage.”
