Achern, March 21, 2023 - The fischer group is planning to install two state-of-the-art windmills close to its company headquarter in Achern. This is not only to secure 100% fossil-free electricity, it is also a major step towards its own hydrogen production on site.
We are already in deep discussions with local and state authorities and the approval process has been started! Government approval is a very big task and will most probably take quite a bit of time. That's why CEO Hans-Peter Fischer met with other important stakeholders last week in Stuttgart, the seat of government of the state of Baden-Württemberg, to push the project forward. We know that we can only be successful if we have the support of policymakers and the administration. On the other hand, we are also aware that our local people also have to be convinced and therefore want to be as transparent as possible.
Stay tuned. We will regularly report on our progress and publish more details in the coming weeks and month.
