Edinburgh: Senvion, one of the world’s biggest wind turbine manufacturers, has signed a new contract with leading renewable energy developer Blue Energy to supply ten Senvion MM92 turbines to the Cour Wind Farm.

Cour Wind Farm is located on the Mull of Kintyre on the West Coast of Scotland. The wind farm will have a total rated output of 20.5 megawatts (MW) and will produce enough electricity to power more than 11,000 homes each year. This is the sixth wind farm project that Senvion and Blue Energy have worked on together in the UK.

The first turbine installations at Cour Wind Farm are scheduled for delivery in Summer 2016, with the expected date of commissioning in Autumn 2016. Senvion also concluded a 20 year maintenance contract with Blue Energy for the project.

Raymond Gilfedder, Managing Director of Senvion Northern Europe, said: “Following our biggest UK onshore turbine contract that we have recently signed with Blue Energy, we are delighted to be supplying and maintaining MM92 turbines for the Cour Wind Farm. This is our sixth supply contract with Blue Energy, totaling a combined rated output of 175 megawatts. We look forward to continuing our successful partnership with Blue Energy.”

Christopher Dean the CEO of Blue Energy, commented: “We are delighted to be ordering another 10 x MM92 turbines from Senvion. This builds upon the excellent relationship we have established together and is the sixth order we have placed during the last 18 months, as Blue Energy rolls out the construction of our UK onshore portfolio.”
