* 3U HOLDING AG realises value enhancement in wind farm portfolio
* Stadtwerke Heidenheim AG - Group expands its portfolio of electricity generation from renewable energies
3U HOLDING AG (ISIN DE0005167902) has sold the Lüdersdorf II wind farm to a subsidiary of the Stadtwerke Heidenheim AG - Group. The wind farm was developed by 3U and put into operation in 2016. Its two Vestas V112 wind turbines with a rotor diameter of 112 m have a total output of 6.6 MW.
The transaction will generate additional income of around EUR 1.5 million for 3U in the 2020 financial year. After completion of the transaction, the remaining 3U portfolio of electricity generation plants from renewable energies will have a capacity of around 53 MW.
Stadtwerke Heidenheim AG - Group is a utility company with a long tradition that has continuously developed since its foundation in 1865 and has been supplying customers throughout Germany with electricity since 2003. The energy required for this is produced in the company's own combined heat and power plants or renewable energy plants. Their installed capacity is more than 130 MW ( https://t1p.de/j15o ).
"We bear responsibility for the supply of our customers, but also for the climate and the environment," emphasises Dieter Brünner, CEO of Stadtwerke Heidenheim AG - Group. "That is why we have been investing in environmentally friendly, decentralised energy supply for decades. The expansion and market integration of renewable energies play a central role. In this context, the acquisition of the Lüdersdorf II wind farm is a sensible and optimal addition to our proprietary green power generation portfolio."
Michael Schmidt, Speaker of the Management Board of 3U HOLDING AG, explains: "Value enhancement is a central corporate purpose at 3U and an important measure of success in our megatrends. This also applies to our commitment to renewable energies. Together, the responsible management of all areas thus contributes to strengthening our strategic focus on cloud computing and online trading ."
