July 2 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine servicing company Deutsche Windtechnik AG has won a contract from Swiss asset manager Re:cap global investors AG to provide service for the Handewitt wind farm in Germany, which uses two Senvion 6.2M126 wind turbines.
This is the first time the company gets a contract for Senvion’s 6-MW class, which is mainly utilised in offshore installations but in a few cases has been deployed onshore as well. Now, Deutsche Windtechnik is providing service for Senvion’s entire range.
"Senvion's insolvency is currently creating a strong demand for our service for a wide range of this manufacturer's turbine technologies, both onshore and offshore,” commented Matthias Brandt, board director at Deutsche Windtechnik.
At present, Deutsche Windtechnik manages just under 300 Senvion turbines under basic or full service contracts.
