In addition to the headquarters in Germany, 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 continuously expanded into foreign markets.
Today about 150 employees at nine locations, in six countries and two continents work together on the realisation of worldwide wind and photovoltaic projects. In total, has been realised a capacity of more than 2,000 MW in seven countries. 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.
"I have been working for WKN for 19 years; for 14 years in the area of Sales/Due Diligence. The experienced, long-standing employees of WKN and PNE ensure reliability in the processes. Often, the transaction teams are a colourful mixture of people from various cultural backgrounds. Above all, it is this goal-oriented and close cooperation beyond national borders that I enjoy."
Corinna (Sales department in Germany)
"In Sweden we have great activists working for a climate change, one single person can’t do everything but everybody can do something. I feel great comfort in working at the WKN group within renewables doing whatever I can to improve our climate situation of the world. That is something I bring further to my children, and I am proud of it."
Ann-Sofi (Project Development in Sweden)
"Being a project manager is a lot about working as a team, taking up challenges and establishing contacts with a lot of different people. What I like the most about WKN is the capacity of the company to encourage training and knowledge sharing between employees, which is a very effective way to improve the quality of our daily work."
Julien (Wind projects manager in France)
"I’ve been working for Sevivon in Gdansk for almost 10 years. The WKN’s further plans make me optimistic for the future and I am pleased to be able to actively support the implementation. An important component of our success is that we as Sevivon and WKN treat the local guarantors with as much appreciation as elsewhere."
Holger (Project Coordinator in Poland)
"Working as part of the WKN Windcurrent team in South Africa is extremely rewarding. The team is growing and so is our healthy new pipeline of wind and solar PV projects. WKN Windcurrent is positioning itself well to participate in approaching renewable energy procurement rounds now and long into the future. It’s very exciting to be part of the WKN journey here in South Africa."
