Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, said on Thursday it has signed a conditional contract with Elicio NV for the delivery, installation and commissioning of 21 Senvion MM100 turbines for the wind farm Alibunar in Serbia.
The installation is planned to take place in autumn 2018 close to the wind farm Malibunar, where Senvion already closed another conditional deal with the customer over four Senvion MM100 turbines, Senvion said in a statement on its website.
"The Alibunar and Malibunar projects are a major success for Senvion - they not only mark the successful market entry into Serbia for us - also it shows both the flexibility of Senvion to deliver turbines to every location and market", said Jochen Magerfleisch, Senvion's executive vice president for sales in Europe.
For both projects, Senvion will take care of servicing over a period of 15 years. Senvion worked with Elicio NV previously on two projects in France and Belgium.
The Alibunar wind farm will be located in the village of the same name 60 kilometers north of Belgrade. The 21 turbines with a hub height of 100 metres and rated output of two megawatts (MW) each will together produce enough energy to power around 27,600 households on average per year.
Senvion signed the deal with Elicio NV at the Hamburg WindEnergy Fair, the world's leading expo for the industry currently underway in the German city.
Senvion develops, produces and markets onshore and offshore wind turbines with rated outputs of 2 MW to 6.15 MW and rotor diameters of 82 metres to 152 metres.
