German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion has reached 2 GW of installed wind capacity in the U.K. alone. The company’s 1 GW mark was reached back in 2013.
Senvion crossed the new milestone with the installation of the first turbine at the Dunsland Cross wind farm, owned by an investment fund advised by Temporis Capital LLP.
Senvion U.K. Ltd was established in 2004. The company now has more than 800 wind turbines in operation – from the former MD series to the current MM and 3.XM series, as well as 30 Senvion 5M offshore turbines at the Ormonde wind farm. In addition, Senvion employs over 170 people in the U.K. and has eight service centers spread across the country.
“We are delighted to reach the historic milestone of 2 GW of installed capacity in the U.K.,” comments Guy Madgwick, managing director of Senvion Northern Europe. “This is the result of years of dedication and commitment by the Senvion team, and it also demonstrates the high level of repeat business and customer loyalty that we experience.” He notes that Senvion installed its first U.K. turbine in 2005.
