The project concerns the construction and operation of two wind farms in Burgenland totalling 165MW of installed capacity. The project replaces partially the old wind turbines and extends partially existing wind farms.


The development of wind energy supports EU and national targets for renewable energy generation and contributes to the EIB's renewable energy objectives. The project further contributes to the EIB's priority objectives for climate action.

Environmental aspects

The project is a repowering project and replaces old turbines. It is located close to sites of nature conservation and also close to other wind farms. A permit amendment process is ongoing, based upon a full Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), that covers both wind farms.


The EC has exempted all contracts which are being awarded to implement electricity generation projects in Austria from the scope of the Utilities Directive. No public procurement is required.
