Company Information

Cuxhaven (euro adhoc) - 3rd January 2012 - On 30th December 2011, the Danish
company, DONG Energy A/S, received the approval for the offshore wind park
project, "Borkum Riffgrund II" from the Bundesamt für Seeschifffahrt und
Hydrographie (BSH) (German Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency) in Hamburg.
PNE WIND AG was also involved from the very outset in the development of this
North Sea project, in which up to 97 wind energy systems can be constructed.
Initially, PNE WIND AG developed the project autonomously and later continued
its development jointly with DONG Energy. After "Borkum Riffgrund II" was sold
to DONG Energy at the end of 2009, PNE WIND AG remained involved as a service
provider and also profits financially.

"Together with DONG Energy we are very happy about the approval. After all, this
is the fourth offshore wind farm project to be approved, in which we have
participated" says Thorsten Fastenau, Head of PNE WIND AGs offshore division.
These include the "Borkum Riffgrund I" project, which was also sold to DONG
Energy with approval having been gained even before sale. DONG Energy is one of
the leading companies in the offshore wind energy sector. 

At that time, the sale transaction included an agreement on milestone payments
to PNE WIND AG for reaching specific steps in the development of the projects.
One of these milestones is the approval now granted. Thus, PNE WIND AG will now
receive a further milestone payment in the medium single-digit million range.

Martin Billhardt, Chief Executive Officer of PNE WIND AG: "The four approvals
which we have gained for offshore wind farm projects ourselves and in
co-operation with competent partners such as DONG Energy illustrate the high
level of professionalism with which these complex projects are carried out. In
this respect we are also very well placed for the future."
