Thirteen Vestas turbines, 11 Enercon, seven Nordex, six Senvion, three ENO Energy and a single Siemens Gamesa model were spread across seven of the country's 16 states, with 13 turbines in the western state of Rhineland Palatinate alone. Eight turbines were part of repowering projects meaning net capacity growth was lower than 134MW.
Out of 730 turbines that won an allocation in 2017, only 35 have been commissioned, five of them in the first three months of 2019.
The permitting situation has slightly improved with 111 turbines (413MW) getting the green light in the first quarter, a third more capacity than the average of the same periods of 2017 and 2018.
