Edinburgh: Senvion, one of the world’s biggest wind turbine manufacturers, has signed a new contract with Infinis to supply nine Senvion MM92 turbines at 78.5 metres hub height to the North Steads Wind Farm.
North Steads is located on the site of a restored, former open cast coal mine near Widdrington Village in Northumberland. The wind farm will have a total rated output of 18.45 megawatts (MW) and an estimated average annual generation equivalent to the domestic needs of more than 10,000 average UK homes. This is now the second wind farm project that Senvion will install with Infinis in the UK.
The first turbine installations at North Steads are scheduled for delivery in April 2016, with the expected date of commissioning in September 2016. Senvion also concluded a five year service contract with an option to extend to another five years.
Raymond Gilfedder, Managing Director of Senvion Northern Europe, said: “We are very happy to be supplying and maintaining turbines for North Steads Wind Farm. As this is our second contract with Infinis, we are especially proud of their renewed confidence in Senvion and we look forward to continuing our relationship with them.”
David Finnon, Infinis Energy’s Head of Wind Construction said: “ Infinis is pleased to once again be working with Senvion and to continue to build upon an already existing relationship. We look forward to the delivery and safe installation of the wind turbines and working with the company to deliver the service agreement once the wind farm is fully operational.”
