Axpo develops, builds, and operates onshore wind farms across Europe. We work across the entire wind energy value chain, from the development, construction and management of plants to the marketing of electricity they produce.
planned capacity in Europe
across Germany & France
Axpo benefits from the extensive experience of its subsidiary Volkswind Group, which has been part of Axpo since 2015. Our experienced team’s track record includes the development and construction of more than 80 wind farms in Germany and France. We have developed over 1,470 MW to date.
Axpo also has a 24.1 per cent interest in the Global Tech I offshore wind farm. One of the first to be built in the German North Sea, the development is known as a ‘far offshore wind farm’ due to its remote location 140 kilometres north of the port of Emden, where its logistics are based.
In Switzerland, we estimate the potential of wind energy to be high. Axpo builds and runs wind projects and aims to invest in and build more plants.
Rated output is the full capacity of a wind turbine generator, measured in megawatts (MW). Wind turbines can reach their rated output value at various wind speeds.
Onshore wind turbines are located on land and generate wind energy from mainland wind.
Offshore wind turbines benefit from high wind speeds at sea and are located off coastal areas. Axpo holds interests in 80 turbines in the North Sea with a total capacity of 400 MW.
Wind turbines transform the power of wind into electrical energy and feed it into the power grid. A wind power plant comprises the following elements:
The wind farm is an arrangement of three or more wind turbines at one location.
We work along the entire value chain in the wind business and aim to expand the onshore capacity in Europe. Find our services in your country.
