German companies Zeag Energie and Burgerenergiegesellschaft Boxberg have formally opened the 12MW Bobstadt-Schweigern wind farm in the German state of Hesse.

The project’s four Enercon E-115 turbines, which have 149-metre hub heights and a 207-metre tip heights, were fully commissioned in March, Zeag Energie said.

Construction of the wind farm, which is located north of Mannheim, started in spring 2017.

Bobstadt-Schweigern (pictured) is expected to deliver enough electricity to the grid to supply about 8600 households.
