Company announcement

UKA sells wind farm to Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust

Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust has acquired the Leeskow wind farm in the municipality of Neu-Seeland in the rural district Oberspreewald-Lausitz from the energy park developer UKA.

The park consists of seven wind turbines, including four Nordex N149 turbines with 4.5 megawatts each and three Nordex N149 turbines with 5.7 megawatts of nominal capacity each. The wind turbines are sited in a forest and were erected with a hub height of 125.4 meters plus up to 1.98 meters of foundation elevation.

Gernot Gauglitz, Managing Partner of UKA: " With Octopus Renewables Infrastructure Trust, we have found a like-minded partner which is also committed to driving the global energy transition forward, as well as delivering an innovation boost to Germany's energy supply."

The total nominal capacity amounts to 34.62 megawatts. The first wind turbine was commissioned back in August 2020, as it received its permit earlier than the other six, which will go into operation in August and September of this year. In total, the seven turbines will save almost 52,000 tons of climate-damaging CO2 annually.
