German firm Senvion SE said in a statement on Tuesday that three new customers have ordered a total of 16 wind turbines totalling 32.5 MW for projects in France.
Canada-based renewable power producer Boralex Inc (TSE:BLX) has purchased seven Senvion MM92 turbines, each with a rated power of 2.05 MW, for the Calmont wind project in the Midi-Pyrenees region.
The second order is from French power producer Neoen and calls for Senvion to supply five of its 2-MW MM100 turbines for the Villacerf wind project in the region of Champagne-Ardenne.
Furthermore, Senvion will ship four of the MM92 turbines for the Severac-Guenrouet community wind scheme developed by Isac-Watts in the Pays de la Loire region.
Together, the three wind farms will be able to generate enough electricity for over 32,500 local homes. Senvion will erect the turbines in the autumn of 2015 and commission them during the winter. The German company will also deliver maintenance services to the Villacerf and Severac-Guenrouet wind parks for a period of 15 years and to the Calmont for two years.
In March 2015, Senvion opened a service centre in Lislet, the region of Picardie.
