Since July 2018, WKN GmbH has been a 100 percent subsidiary of PNE AG. The PNE Group is a German wind power pioneer operating internationally and is one of the most experienced project developers of onshore and offshore wind farms. The brands PNE and WKN have been united under the umbrella of the PNE Group since 2013 and are have been developed into an Clean Energy Solutions Provider.

In addition to the headquarters in Husum, the WKN Group is now represented with branches and joint ventures in various countries in Europe and South Africa. After its founding in 1990, the WKN Group continuously expanded into foreign markets. Today about 150 employees at ten locations, in six countries and two continents work together on the realization of worldwide wind projects. Despite different languages, cultures and countries of origin, all WKN employees share the same vision: a 100% renewable energy supply. We shape the future and promote the energy revolution.

"As a vocation, I started to work for the wind energy in 2004, at the early age of the wind development in France. Today, after 9 years working for WKN France, I can say I’m very glad to do my best for the construction of wind farms within a strong and human-size company."

"Being a project manager is a lot about working as a team, taking up challenges and establishing contacts with a lot of different people.
