    With this day all adminstrative decisions, permits and approvals concerning PROFES´s own windpark project Scharndorf West necessary for the construction and operation of the wind turbines, especially the environmental impact assessment notification, are finally established. About that we are very grateful and now we are looking forward to realizing the 2 Vestas V112-3.0MW in 2013.
    Vestas V112-3.0MW fixed for Wind Park Scharndorf West

    After extensive negotiations PROFES concluded today a delivery contract and a long-term full maintenance contract with the world market leader Vestas for two V112-3.0MW turbines for the project Wind Park Scharndorf West. Next year the first Vestas turbines of that type in Austria will be erected there.
    WP Scharndorf West - Environmental impact assessment (EIA) submitted
    (December 20th, 2011)
    Just before Christmas PROFES could submit the comprehensive documents including the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for an approval concerning the project Wind Park Scharndorf West to the Lower Austrian government - a total of 58 ring binders! Another major step towards the planned realisation of two wind turbines Vestas V112-3 MW in 2012/2013!
    WP Scharndorf West: Legally binding of designation of areas
    (August 9th, 2011)
    After successful completion of the Strategic Environmental Assessment the legal designation of areas for the positions of both wind turbines of the Windpark Scharndorf West could be achieved. This represents an important precondition for the submission of this wind park to get an approval under the Environmental Impact Assessment Act.
    Inspection for dedication of areas positively completed
    (June 1st, 2011)
    The inspection for the dedication of areas concerning two wind turbine sites of the Windpark Scharndorf West was closed without objection on 25th May and on 1st of June the reginonal planning department made its positive assessment. The next step, the Environmental Impact Assessment, should follow in the coming weeks. We welcome the positive developments of this in-house wind energy project!
    Wind park Scharndorf West: 2 new wind turbines of the 3 MW class
    (November 17th, 2010)
    The municipality Scharndorf and PROFES signed a contract for the realisation of additional wind turbines in the west of the municipal area. Two of the latest generation of wind turbines, each around 3 MW, will be built, producing electricity for around 5.000 households and reducing CO2-emissions of about 12.000 tonnes per year.
