Hamburg/Gollmitz (euro adhoc) - July 16, 2009. The independent power producer Enertrag AG

@@start.t2@@is commencing electricity generation at the Gollmitz wind park  today.  The
      five wind power systems with a total output of 12.5 MW will  be  generating
      28.9 million  kWh  of  electricity  each  year,  sufficient  to  cover  the
      requirements of 8,250 households. This high yield is being made possible by
      the Nordex N100, which has been  especially  configured  for  typical  non-
      coastal conditions characterized by  steady  wind  volumes.  With  a  rotor
      diameter of 100 meters and a nominal  capacity  of  2.5  MW,  the  turbines
      already comply with the latest electrical requirements of the German Energy
      Feed-In Act.

      In planning the wind farm, Enertrag was guided by two principles:  "On  the
      one hand, we wanted to achieve the highest possible local  content  in  the
      North East of Germany and therefore deliberately used Nordex turbines which
      had been produced in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania,"  explained  Enertrag  CEO
      Jörg Müller. Enertrag  also  gave  preference  to  local  construction  and
      electrical companies in the Uckermark  region  in  awarding  contracts  for
      preparatory assembly work. Construction of the foundations and access roads
      as well cable work thus helped to secure jobs in the region,  as  will  the
      ensuing operation of the wind farm. In  addition,  we  implemented  various
      environmental compensation measures," Müller  added.  Among  other  things,
      Enertrag is planting around 60 trees and financing the demolition of  three
      derelict buildings and the ensuing  sealing  of  the  ground  in  Gollmitz,
      Wilhelmshof and Kröchlendorff.

      The N100 is a further development of the proven Nordex N80/90 wind  turbine
      family. Since 2000,  the  North  Germany-based  wind  system  producer  has
      assembled over 1,000 of these turbines around the world. The turbines being
      used at the Gollmitz wind park have a hub height and rotor diameter of  100
      meter and a rotor sweep of 7,823 square meters.

      "The project testifies to the confidence which  our  long-standing  partner
      Enertrag has placed in our wind power systems, particularly  those  in  the
      2.5 MW class. The N100 is one of the most powerful series-produced turbines
      for non-coastal locations currently available on the market," explains Jörg
      Hempel, managing director and sales director for Nordex Central Europe.

      Enertrag and Nordex have been working together for a  long  time:  Enertrag
      supplies firing systems for Nordex in Germany and other European countries,
      including for the N100 in Gollmitz. In addition, the Gollmitz wind farm  is
      equipped with an Enertrag vision range system to reduce the  brightness  of
      the night warning beacon for aircraft, thus minimizing the disturbance  for
      neighboring residents.@@end@@
