Company Information/Offshore


Wolfschlugen (euro adhoc) - - Senior finance debt from UBS and EIG Global Energy
secured 
- Project financing over EUR 1.85 billion coming towards closure

After a year of extensive inspection by both parties, a commitment of up to 500
million euros was granted, which is intended to finance the equity. Deutsche
Bank, together with other banks syndicated a debt capital of over 1 billion
euros. A further 100 million euros are required for funding the project.

Information on offshore wind farms
The independent institute wind: research has created a top 12 list of the wind
farms in the German North Sea, which have already received a grid connection
approval. Since there are construction delays at the first and third places,
Windreich projects MEG 1, Global Tech I, and Deutsche Bucht are currently the
only timely running offshore wind farms. Windreich AG will be the first project
developer to connect a 400 MW wind farm to the German grid. With 400 MW, 1
million people will be supplied with clean, safe, and affordable electricity. In
addition, 1.5 million tonnes of CO2 emissions are reduced. The high consistent
wind from the North See caters for base load capacity. In the low wind year
2011, the test wind farm Alpha Ventus could not produce electricity for only
three days. 

Projects with timely grid connection confirmation cause no additional expenses
for private electricity consumers!

contribution after realization of the present projects. This implies that
Windreich is making a sustained contribution to the energy transition more than
any other company.
