December 21 (Renewables Now) - Germany’s Senvion SA (ETR:SEN) has secured a contract renewal for servicing compatriot Innogy SE’s (ETR:IGY) 295-MW Nordsee Ost offshore wind farm in German waters.
Innogy, the listed renewables, grids and retail operations subsidiary of Germany's RWE AG (ETR:RWE), said on Thursday it has signed a four-year deal with Senvion that replaces an earlier agreement and includes new service concepts such as joint service teams and sea-based solutions.
Senvion has been responsible for servicing the Nordsee Ost wind farm since all turbines at the site were erected in 2014. It won the new contract, which was replaced ahead of schedule, following a competitive selection process.
The Nordsee Ost park came online in May 2015. The 48 Senvion 6.2M126 turbines, installed near the island of Heligoland, are producing enough power to meet the demand of 320,000 German homes.
According to the press release, Innogy is involved in 2.5 GW of offshore wind projects in the UK, Germany and Belgium.
