Dec 22, 2014 - German company Senvion SE, part of India’s Suzlon Energy (BOM:532667), on Monday unveiled contracts to supply more than 60 MW of wind turbines for projects in the UK.
Since the start of the year, Senvion has signed UK deals for turbines with a combined capacity of almost 250 MW.
Under one of the newly announced contracts, the wind turbine maker will ship 14 of its MM82 machines with a combined capacity of 28.7 MW for the Penmanshiel wind project in the Scottish Borders. This contract, which also includes a 20-year service agreement, is the first between Senvion and Renewable Energy Systems Ltd, or RES Group.
RES has already commenced pre-construction works on the site and expects to complete the plant in the autumn of 2016.
Meanwhile, Senvion has received its second order from InfraRed Capital Partners, for three 3.4M104 wind turbines. They will be erected in east Lancashire to form the 10.2-MW Reaps Moss wind farm. Installation is scheduled to start next summer. This deal includes a 20-year ISP service contract.
Furthermore, the company has agreed with Broadview Energy to equip the 10.25-MW Watford Lodge wind farm in Northamptonshire with five MM92 turbines. The plant is to be completed in the autumn of 2015. Senvion will be providing maintenance services to that wind park for a period of 15-years.
Last, but not least, Senvion has also secured an order from UK infrastructure company John Laing to initiate installation of seven MM82 machines next month as part of the 14.35-MW New Albion wind project in Northamptonshire. That order comes with a 15-year service contract. The New Albion wind farm is expected to be completed by January 2016.
