Senvion Closes Framework Agreement for 100 MW with PROKON

Hamburg: Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, has closed a long-term support and cooperation framework agreement for four wind farms in Germany with PROKON for a total capacity of 100 megawatts (MW). From the framework agreement, Senvion has already signed a conditional contract for 69 MW which includes the delivery and commissioning of the turbines, as well as a service agreement. In the first batch, four individual wind projects will be equipped with 21 turbines from the Senvion 3-megawatt portfolio, including the Senvion 3.4M140 for low-wind sites that Senvion launched last September.

The four projects will be built utilizing one Senvion 3.2M122, five Senvion 3.0M122, eight Senvion 3.4M114 and also include seven Senvion 3.4M140. This turbine with a new pitch system and sound optimized serrations on its blades is particularly suitable for low-wind locations as well as forested and mountainous areas. The 21 turbines will produce approximately 173,000,000 kilowatt-hours each year, enough electricity to power more than 45,000 German households each year.

Jürgen Geissinger, CEO of Senvion, says: "We are particularly happy about this cooperation. Together with PROKON, we will realize this project that includes four different Senvion turbine types from our 3.XM series, including our recently launched Senvion 3.4M140. This proves that we have the right turbine for every site in Germany, and we are very much looking forward to the successful completion of the projects together with PROKON." The commissioning of the four wind projects is planned between 2016 and 2018.

Heiko Wuttke, CEO of PROKON Regenerative Energien eG, says: "For the implementation of our outstanding project pipeline, with Senvion we have found a partner that suits us very well. This refers both to the wind turbine technology and to the cooperation in the operation of wind farms. The PROKON cooperative is active with its projects in regions with very different wind potentials, both in the north and in the interior of Germany. Therefore, it is important for us that our wind turbines meet all these different challenges. We are very much looking forward to the cooperation. "

The Senvion 3 MW portfolio comprises turbines with nominal capacity of 3.0 to 3.4 MW and rotor diameters from 104 to 140 meters. Altogether, 604 Senvion 3.XM turbines with a total capacity of almost 2,000 MW are installed in Germany.
