Senvion, a global manufacturer of wind turbines, says it has concluded its first contract in Norway for the supply of 33 Senvion 3.4M114 turbines to the 112.2 MW Egersund wind farm.
According to Senvion, the project with Norsk Vind Egersund AS will produce enough green energy to power more than 73,000 Norwegian households, which equals nearly half of the surrounding Norwegian province of Rogaland.
As reported, the supply contract was confirmed in June of this year, and the final contract is now effective.
Senvion says the wind farm was acquired by LUXCARA, one of Europe’s major asset managers for renewable energy investments. Further, Egersund will be part of the portfolio of the fund FLAVEO Infrastructure Europe SCS SICAV-FIS – Solar and Wind, which was set up for institutional investors.
Currently, in 2016, six years after introducing the first 3.XM turbine to the market, Senvion boasts a track record of 765 Senvion 3.XM wind energy turbines, which amounts to 2.5 GW installed of this product type alone.
According to the company, the first turbine installations at Egersund are scheduled for the second quarter of 2017, and commissioning is expected to take place in the second and third quarters of 2017. Located on the North Sea coast of Norway, between Kristiansand and Stavanger, the turbines will be constructed at a hub height of 93 meters. A Senvion service center in Egersund will be responsible for turbine maintenance for 15 years, the company notes.
