Senvion recently concluded contracts totaling 56.1 MW for Eurowatt’s Antilope wind portfolio in the Hauts-de-France region.
Senvion will equip the Champ de la Grand-Mere, Terres Noires, and Croix Noire 1 and 2 wind farms with a total of 24 wind turbines from its 2 MW and 3 MW portfolio. The portfolio will produce enough electricity to power more than 18,600 households in France, says Senvion.
The Champ de la Grand-Mere wind farm will feature six MM92 machines with a total rated output of 12.3 MW. Installation will begin by the end of this year; commissioning is planned for March 2017.
The Terres Noires wind farm will feature six 3.2M114 turbines with a total rated output of 19.2 MW. Installation is scheduled for May 2017; commissioning is scheduled for the third quarter of 2017.
In May, Senvion concluded contracts with Eurowatt for the Croix Noire wind farms 1 and 2. Croix Noire 1 will feature six MM92 turbines, and the Croix Noire 2 wind farm will consist of one MM82 and five MM92 machines – representing a total rated output of 24.6 MW. Installation is due to start at both wind farms by the end of this year, and commissioning will take place in the first quarter of next year.
Under the turnkey contracts, Senvion will be responsible for the foundations, civil works and electrical works – which began simultaneously at the Champ de la Grand-Mere and Croix Noire 1 and 2 projects in June. Senvion will also provide full maintenance services to all four wind farms for 15 years. An additional Senvion service center was opened in Frévent, France, earlier this month.
Last month, Senvion announced that it had reached more than 2 GW of installed capacity in France.
