About WKN Windcurrent
As a subsidiary of the German WKN GmbH and a member of the PNE Group, WKN Windcurrent has been developing wind energy projects since 2011. The local team currently comprises eight highly experienced development experts, including project developers, site analysts and land negotiators working together on the realization of wind and solar PV projects based on the highest South African and German development standards. Amongst other development activities, the team focuses on identifying new project sites, securing land lease agreements, wind measurement and analysis, project optimisation, permitting processes, and grid planning and approvals.
As a member of the PNE Group, WKN Windcurrent benefits from a strong network consisting of long-standing experts with industry-specific know-how. Therefore, while our core focus in South Africa is project planning and selling 100% of the rights to developed projects that are “ready to tender” to suitable investors, globally we do offer our customers all services along the life cycle of a project – professionally from a single source. The focus is wind and solar PV project planning services, financing, construction and operations management as well as continued operation.
