Senvion UK Ltd has kicked off the new year in style by crossing a significant milestone and reaching two gigawatts (GW) installed capacity in the UK. Senvion crosses this milestone with the installation of the TBC dependent on installation schedule/weather delays.
Last year, the company 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. These significant achievements desmontrate how Senvion remains a key player in the UK wind market. Since Senvion UK Ltd was established in 2004, the company has over 800 turbines in operation, as well as 30 Senvion 5M offshore turbines at the Ormonde wind farm. Senvion employs over 170 people in the UK, with eight service centres spread across the country.
Guy Madgwick, Managing Director of Senvion Northern Europe, said: “We are delighted to reach the historic milestone of 2 GW of installed capacity in the UK. This is the result of years of dedication and commitment by the Senvion team and it also demonstrates the high level of repeat business and customer loyalty that we experience. Our innovative and flexible approach is a key strength in our business relationships and we are committed to building further on the successful partnerships we have developed since we installed our first turbine in the UK in 2005.”
