Consolidated competence in wind matters - Former Minister Claus Möller is a member of the WKN Supervisory Board
Husum - In mid-June Claus Möller, born in 1942, was appointed member of the Supervisory Board of the Husum-based project developer WKN AG. During his active career the former Finance and Energy Minister of Schleswig-Holstein held high political offices in state politics.
His passion was and is predominantly energy politics. "The energy turnaround in Schleswig-Holstein, which was already initiated in 1988, is fundamentally linked to the name Claus Möller," says Martinus Scherweit, Chairman of the WKN AG Management Board. "We are therefore very pleased that Claus Möller now enriches our Supervisory Board with his proven competence and experience." In his other functions, among others as Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Stadtwerke Lübeck GmbH / Stadtwerke Lübeck Netz GmbH and Stadtwerke Holding GmbH, the former Minister still continues to be actively associated with energy politics in Schleswig-Holstein. Furthermore, Claus Möller is also a vital player on the stage of federal politics.
WKN AG has planned, installed and operated turnkey wind farms and solar power systems in Germany since 1990. In addition, WKN AG is also internationally represented by subsidiaries in numerous European countries, South Africa and the US. Up to now, the company has initiated and realized projects with a total of around 1,100 megawatts capacity.
The headquarters of the WKN-Group are located at the "House of Future Energies", an established center of excellence for renewable energy sources in Husum/Germany. 53.65 percent of WKN shares are privately owned by the company’s founder Volker Friedrichsen. About 17 percent are held by diverse private and institutional shareholders while 29.33 percent are in the hands of Siemens Project Ventures. The Chairman of the WKN Supervisory Board is Dr Klaus Rave.
