We work for the energy transition
Windkraft Simonsfeld AG operates 75 wind power plants in Austria and two in Bulgaria. In Slovakia we operate a solar power plant. The annual production in 2020 of about 499 million kWh makes us one of the large wind power producers in Austria. This amount of electricity corresponds to the annual consumption of around 125,000 households.
In 2021, we will build 14 new wind turbines and increase our production capacity by 20%. Numerous other wind and solar power plants are in the planning stage.
With 25 years of company history, Windkraft Simonsfeld AG has many years of experience as a wind power producer as well as an operator and developer of wind turbines in Austria. The company was founded in 1996 and has its headquarter in Ernstbrunn, Lower Austria. The Windkraft Simonsfeld Group employs 71 people, 62 of them in Austria.
Our business model
Everything from one source
Windkraft Simonsfeld AG serves the entire life cycle of a wind farm – from project development to technical operational management through to the generation and sale of electricity.
Major business areas
At its core, our business activities comprise the generation of electricity from wind turbines and, to a lesser extent, photovoltaic systems. Electricity generation is our most economically significant business area. We operate wind power plants in Austria and Bulgaria and a photovoltaic power plant in Slovakia.
The development of wind and solar power plant projects is another business area. The focus is on project development in Austria. However, we also develop wind and solar power plants in Bulgaria, Romania, Slovakia and France. We only develop power plants powered by renewable energies.
In addition to our own power plants, we also manage wind power plants for other operators on the basis of operational management contracts. In addition to technical management, core services also include individual service areas such as plant monitoring, maintenance and repair work, and regular plant inspections.
