Edinburgh: Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, has signed its second UK contract with RES to supply 11 Senvion MM82 turbines to the Freasdail Wind Farm.

Freasdail Wind Farm is located on the Kintyre Peninsula on the West Coast of Scotland. The wind farm will be built east of the A83 at Gartnagrenach and south of Whitehouse, in Argyll and Bute. The wind farm will have a total rated output of 22.55 megawatts (MW) and will produce enough electricity to power more than 12,000 homes each year. Senvion also concluded a five year maintenance contract with the option to extend for another five years.

The first turbines for the Freasdail Wind Farm are scheduled for delivery in autumn 2016, with pre-commissioning works starting in December 2016.

Raymond Gilfedder, Managing Director of Senvion Northern Europe, said: “We are delighted to be signing our second turbine contract with RES in the UK, building on what is a solid partnership between the two companies.”
