Abo Wind AG, Wiesbaden, is building an approximately 5 ha area with greenfield solar power plants in the Odenwald in the municipality of Mossautal.

In order to create the legal requirements for building planning, igr received the order both to change the land use plan and to draw up a development plan. The presentation and evaluation (including visualization) of the effects on the landscape and the treatment of species protection (mapping and assessment, especially breeding birds) were challenging in terms of planning.

Thanks to intensive coordination with the approval authorities, good cooperation with the community representatives and support with the land-use plan procedure, construction could begin in autumn 2021. Here, too, igr is involved in the planning of the cable route (20 kV underground line to the feed point) in the approval process through the creation of a landscape maintenance plan and ecological construction supervision.
