Wind farm Hornisgrinde

On the highest mountain in the north of the black forest.

With our crane HK400 on the 1.163 meters high Hornisgrinde the LTM 1400 built the cement tower for an Enercon E70 wind power plant.

The wind and weather situation at this site were extremely bad: on the Hornisgrinde the average annual temperature is below 5 degrees with 2.000 millimeters rainfall.

Because of the good wind data of 5,2 meters per second, since 1994 there are three small wind power plants located, which have been dissembled in August. The new plant has a rated power of 2,3 mega watt with a rotor diameter of 71 meters.
