  • 10 years of renewable energy, 10 years of vortex energy

    In the summer of 2004, a small team of four created vortex energy. Today, vortex energy celebrates its 10 year anniversary, and with it a list of considerable achievements. This exciting enterprise has experienced its ups and downs, however we have used those obstacles as opportunities to consistently learn from mistakes, and to increase the level of professionalism within our firm. There is much to celebrate, including vortex energy's growth into a firm with 50 employees in Germany and Poland. With this team have come a range of skills and services  that have made vortex energy a successful wind energy developer, bringing 280 MW to realization. Our thanks go out to the vortex energy team and all involved in the projects; from the subcontractors and financial partners, to the advisors and investors who have trusted us so far.  Without the assistance of all these individuals, we would not have achieved these 10 years of success.

    vortex energy sells 42 MW wind farm project in Poland The vortex energy group has concluded an agreement with the Italian wind energy company, ERG Renew, to sell 100% of its shares in the company EW Orneta 2. EW Orneta 2 will keep the project rights for the construction of wind farms in the Polish community of Radziejów while upholding the planned capacity of 42 MW. After commission is complete, the wind farm will have an estimated electricity generation of 100 GWh per year, and has a reduced CO2 emission of approximately 85kt. Construction of the wind farm is expected to commence in the third quarter of 2014 and will be operational by mid 2015.

  • Lauperath - Construction Begins

    Located at Lauperath/Eifel, vortex energy deutschland GmbH commissioned the construction of an Enercon E-101 wind turbine with a hub height of 135,4 meters and a nominal capacity of 3.05 MW which supplies sufficient electricity for roughly 2500 households per year. This turbine marks two important innovations for vortex energy. On the one hand, it is the first cooperation between Enercon and vortex energy. On the other hand, after successful commissioning, vortex energy deutschland GmbH is going to take over technical operations and wind turbine management for the first time in Germany. Based on extensive long-term experience with our 146 MW Polish wind farms, we are perfectly suited to this.

    The hilly landscape of the Eifel is a real challenge for construction work but vortex energy already gathered many experience and know-how in this area (Eisenach/Eifel), which we will effectively use for this project. The start of operation is scheduled for the beginning of 2014.
