THE NATURSTROMSPEICHER - OUR BIG GREEN BATTERY
Your wind farm can do more than you think. Why not turn it into a highly versatile energy storage plant and make your portfolio fit for the future energy market.
The Naturstromspeicher, our natural energy storage plant, is the combination of a wind farm with a pumped storage hydro-electric power plant. It utilises the towers and bases of wind turbines as water reservoirs. These bases make it possible to increase hub heigths by an additional 40 metres. As a result, you can increase power generation from wind energy by as much as 25 percent.
In terms of building construction and machinery, the Naturstromspeicher uses standardised technology throughout. That means we can achieve competitive costs for investment and ensure long-term operation of the installations.
Adaptive pumped storage plants are used almost round the clock for the various purposes required in the electricity market.
