German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion SA (ETR:SEN) said on Wednesday it has secured a four-year renewal contract to service a 122-MW wind park in the Netherlands on behalf of its owner Vattenfall AB.
The deal covers all 36 Senvion 3.4M104 turbines at the Princess Alexia wind park at Zeewolde, Flevoland province. The machines will be serviced by joint engineering teams of Senvion and Nuon, a Dutch subsidiary of Swedish state-owned utility Vattenfall. The servicing will be performed from a base in Nijkerk municipality.
Previously known as the Zuidlob wind farm, Princess Alexia has been generating electricity since September 2013. Its output is enough to meet the demand of up to 88,000 homes annually.
Senvion was in charge of building the wind park, which it says is one of the largest onshore wind power facilities in the Netherlands and in Europe. The plant is linked to a 3.2-MW energy storage facility that uses BMW-i3 batteries.
