Stuttgart – Schöller Wind GmbH has sold the Horath wind farm to an investment vehicle owned by John Laing Investments, with effect from 11 November 2016. The wind farm consists of nine wind turbines of type Vestas V112. Located in Rhineland-Palatinate, the turbines have a hub height of 140 metres, a rotor diameter of 112 metres and a rated output of 3.3 MW each. The wind farm entered service at the start of October 2016 and will generate around 70 million kilowatt hours (KWh) of electricity a year.
A team from CMS Germany led by Dr Antje Becker-Boley advised Schöller Wind GmbH on all legal aspects of the current sale of the project companies to John Laing Investments. The same team also acted successfully on behalf of Schöller Wind when the company acquired the project rights.
Headquartered in Reutlingen, Schöller Wind GmbH is a family-owned company specialising in the development, construction and sale of wind turbines, along with their management. As part of the Schöller Group, the company also offers technical and commercial operation of wind turbines over their entire service life in the context of wind farm projects.
