Senvion wins order to supply 17 turbines to RWE wind farm
Edinburgh: Senvion SE has signed its second UK contract with RWE Innogy within two months. Senvion will be supplying 17 wind turbines, from its two megawatts (MW) series, to RWE’s Goole Fields II extension project. Located in East Riding, Yorkshire, Goole Fields II Wind Farm will consist of 17 Senvion MM92 turbines with a total rated output of 34.85 megawatts (MW). On completion, this will extend the existing Goole Fields Wind Farm, constructed in 2014, from 16 to 33 turbines, with an expected total rated output of over 67 MW. It is estimated that the average annual generation expected at Goole Fields and Goole Fields II would be equivalent to the domestic needs of around 38,000 average UK homes*. This is now the 10th wind farm project that Senvion will install with RWE Innogy in the UK.
Raymond Gilfedder, Managing Director of Senvion Northern Europe, said: “We are delighted to be installing wind turbines for RWE Innogy’s Goole Fields II. This continues a long standing and reliable partnership between Senvion and RWE Innogy on some of the UK’s largest and most ambitious onshore wind projects. We look forward to continuing to build on our excellent relationship with RWE.”
First turbine installations are scheduled for autumn 2015. Senvion also concluded a 5 year service contract with an option to extend to 10 and 15 years.
Tim Daldry, Senior Project Manager at RWE Innogy UK, said: “Our collaboration with Senvion on the construction and turbine installation of Goole Fields I was very successful and scooping the highly commended award for the ‘New Engineering Contract (NEC) Large Project of the Year, 2015’ was testimony to this. We are delighted to be working with Senvion again in Goole and signing this contract is a key milestone in the delivery of the project.”
* The predicted annual generation at the site has been calculated based on performance data for wind farms already operating in England. Should site wind and turbine characteristics result in similar output levels to these operational sites RWE expects Goole Fields II Wind Farm to generate an amount of electricity equivalent to supply the approximate domestic needs of an estimated range of 14,300 to 19,800 average UK households each year.
