REpower wins 20.5 MW contract with RWE npower renewables
Edinburgh, January 13th 2012. REpower has signed a deal to supply 10 wind turbines to Bradwell wind farm, developed by RWE npower renewables. The wind farm, located to the south of Bradwell-On-Sea in Essex, will consist of REpower MM82 machines.
The turbines at Bradwell, with a rated output of 2.05 MW each, will generate enough electricity to power the equivalent of nearly 12,000 homes annually.
Installation of the wind turbines will start in the latter half of 2012 and is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
Rick Eggleston, managing director of REpower UK, commented;
“Signing the contract for Bradwell has boosted our RWE npower renewables portfolio to over 70 MW. They were one of the first companies to buy REpower wind turbines in the UK, so we’re delighted to continue our relationship with them.”
Michael Williams, Project Manager from RWE npower renewables, commented:
"We are pleased to be working again with REpower UK and building on our past successes. RWE npower renewables are now finalising contracts for the associated Civil and Electrical Balance of Plant works. We aim to start construction of the wind farm before Easter 2012 which is likely to present opportunities for economic benefit and employment in the region."
