ECOwind expands Steinriegel wind farm

The Steinriegel wind farm was built in 2005, on a mountain ridge of the same name on the border between the Styrian municipalities of Ratten and Langenwang. The farm is located at an altitude of around 1,600 m and comprises 10 turbines with a total capacity of 13 megawatts.

Since the farm came into operation, it has supplied electricity to around 10,500 households without any significant problems arising.

As general contractor, ECOwind GmbH has now received new planning permission to expand the wind farm by 25.3 megawatts – a planning application that has taken several years to obtain approval. From December 2014 onwards, 11 wind turbines  will produce approximately 45,000,000 kWh of electricity, thereby supplying another 13,500 households with green energy.

With a total annual production of around 75,000,000 kWh, the wind farm is one of the largest alpine wind farms in Europe.

Energy for Styria

Steinriegel II is operated by Austria’s largest energy provider, Wien Energie GmbH, which will operate the wind farm in exactly the same way as the existing farm.




Once Steinriegel II wind farm is completed, 107.9 megawatts of wind energy will be connected to the Styrian grid.

The two wind farms on the Steinriegel (38.3 megawatts) and the 4 wind turbines that were installed on the Pongratzer Kogel (9.2 megawatts) in 2013, for which ECOwind GmbH is responsible for roughly the half, are testimony to the company’s leading position in wind turbine project development and installation within the southern Austrian province of Styria.
