The company announced today the successful agreement to sell a 112.5 MW wind energy portfolio to NeXtWind, a leading German renewable energy company specializing in acquiring and repowering onshore wind farms.

Both parties collaborated in a strategic partnership in the early stages of this portfolio, culminating in its successful transfer, with the aim of NeXtWind bringing it to completion.

The portfolio comprises high-quality assets situated throughout Germany, presenting a rare, diversified, and thoroughly de-risked late-stage onshore wind portfolio totaling 112.5 MW. Upon completion of the repowering process, the capacity is expected to increase to approximately 300 MW.

Benefiting from in-house expert teams in project development, EPC (Engineering, Procurement & Construction), technical and commercial operations management, as well as energy management, Qualitas Energy has advanced the development of repowering projects significantly. Several of these projects have successfully passed the approval process and are ready to enter the construction stages. The assurance of quality and timely implementation in the region is upheld through the effective utilization of these capabilities and expertise.
