December 13 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion SA (ETR:SEN) has secured firm orders for 47.5 MW of turbines from its 3.XM platform for projects in Belgium, France and Portugal.
More specifically, Senvion will deliver equipment under two contracts in Belgium -- for EDF Luminus’ Sint Gillis Waas project and the Rebaix scheme of Eoly, part of Colruyt Group. The plants will use a total of four turbines from the 3.4M104 and 3.4M114 types, whose installation and commissioning is scheduled for next summer.
Senvion will also supply four of its 3.4M114 turbines for the Aschere-le-Marche wind farm in France, which was developed by German renewables developer ABO Wind AG and later sold to Czech utility CEZ. The machines are expected to be installed and brought online within the second half of 2019. Separately, the German manufacturer will equip the 20.4-MW Marvila II wind park in Leiria, Portugal, with six of its 3.4M122 machines under a deal with EKZ, the utility of the Canton of Zurich. It expects to put the plant on stream in the autumn of 2019.
Senvion will responsible for maintaining EDF Luminus's wind farm for 20 years. Service contracts of 15 years, all of which with extension options, are also included for the Marvila, Rebaix and Aschere-le-Marche plants.
