Senvion has signed its first contract in the Republic of Ireland with renewable energy investor NTR on behalf of NTR's wind investment fund. The contract will see Senvion supply five MM82 wind turbines for the Teevurcher wind farm in County Meath. Once operational, the project will have an installed capacity of 10.25 megawatts and will generate enough renewable electricity to power over 7000 Irish households annually.
Senvion has concluded contracts with Banks Renewables for the supply and installation of 47 turbines for three wind farm projects totalling 151 megawatts (MW). Senvion has also signed 20 year operations and maintenance contracts for all three projects. Senvion will supply 26 of its 3.4M104 turbines for Kype Muir Wind Farm, located in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. The wind farm will have a total rated output of 88 megawatts and will produce enough electricity to power 62,000 homes each year.
Senvion has signed a conditional contract with Nexif Energy for the EPC contracts and maintenance agreements for the 25 turbine Glen Innes Wind Farm in New South Wales and the 59 turbine Lincoln Gap Wind Farm in South Australia. Both wind farms will see the introduction of the new Senvion 3.6M140 turbine into the Australian market.
Senvion has reached two gigawatts (GW) installed capacity in the UK. Senvion crosses this milestone with the installation of the first turbine at the Dunsland Cross wind farm, owned by an investment fund advised by Temporis Capital LLP, located in Devon. In 2016 Senvion installed a record number of turbines onshore and was also highlighted as the leading UK manufacturer by installation figures based on research by the annual Onshore Wind Project Intelligence Report published by RenewableUK in October 2016.
