December 6 (Renewables Now) - Germany’s Senvion SA (ETR:SEN) today announced two new wind turbine supply contracts in Ireland for a total of 27 MW.
Irish green asset manager NTR Plc, which awarded Senvion’s first such deal in Ireland earlier this year, has now purchased two 3.2M114 turbines for installation as part of the Rathnacally wind project near Charleville in County Cork. Senvion expects to deliver the machines in the first half of 2018. The wind farm itself is seen entering into service in the second quarter.
Previously, NTR ordered five MM82 wind turbines for the Teevurcher wind farm in County Meath.
Also today, Senvion said it has received an order from Galetech Energy for the supply of 10 units of 2-MW turbines for the Carrickallen wind farm in County Cavan. This includes two MM82 turbines with a hub height of 59 metres, seven MM92 units with a hub height of 74.5 metres and one MM92 with a hub height of 64 metres.
Deliveries under the Galetech deal are scheduled to begin early next summer. The project is expected to be completed at end-2018.
