August 9 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion SA (ETR:SEN) said today it has obtained a contract from Saudi energy group Alfanar for up to 300 MW in Spain.

Senvion has agreed to supply a broad range of wind turbines, including the new models 3.XM140 and 4.2M140. The company’s Senvion Iberica arm plans to further grow its team of industry experts, project managers and service technicians for these projects, the announcement says.

The contract envisages the installation and commissioning of the machines in 2019 and also includes a 20-year full maintenance service for all turbines.

Alfanar received the largest wind allotment of 720 MW in the Spanish auction that was held last summer. The company targets developing some 9 GW around the world by 2025 and expects to have global operational assets of nearly 1.84 GW by the end of 2019, according to Jamal M. Wadi, CEO of Alfanar Energy, the Saudi group’s fully-owned renewables development subsidiary.
