First turbines equipped with a 140 metre rotor diameter

 

Milan: Senvion has concluded a contract for the largest rotor turbine in Italy. The order by Repower Renewables comprises the delivery and installation of the Rosario wind farm, located in the province of Sassari (Sardinia, Italy) and is part of Senvion’s December order intake. Senvion will provide full maintenance services for 15 years.

The Rosario wind farm will consist of two Senvion 3.6M140 turbines with a capacity of 3 megawatts (MW) each. The installation of the wind farm will be completed by May this year and at that time, with a rotor size of 140 metres and a hub height of 107 metres, the Senvion wind turbines will be the largest rotor turbines ever installed in Italy. The towers of the turbines will be built in Italy, while the nacelles and the blades will be produced in Germany and Portugal respectively.

Carlo Schiapparelli, Managing Director of Senvion Italy, said: “I would like to thank Repower Renewables for their trust in Senvion. This new wind farm follows those already built in Armo (Liguria), Venti di Nurra (Sardinia) and Buseto Palizzolo (Sicily) in Italy.”

Marco Ceroni, CEO at Repower Renewables – a joint venture of the Repower Group and the Capenergie III fund managed by Omnes Capital – said: "Repower Renewables is a platform for the development, construction and aggregation of renewable energy plants in Italy. Rosario represents the first green field construction in 2019 and will bring our total installed capacity to around 90 MW. We are glad to continue the relationship with Senvion for the construction and management of our wind farms."
