Marking its first contract in Ireland, German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion has signed a deal with renewable energy investor NTR on behalf of NTR’s wind investment fund.
Under the contract, Senvion will supply five MM82 turbines for the Teevurcher wind farm in County Meath. Once operational, the project will have an installed capacity of 10.25 MW, which is enough to generate power for more than 7,000 Irish households annually.
“The contract for Teevurcher wind farm is a significant milestone which reflects the clear global growth strategy of Senvion,” notes Jürgen Geissinger, CEO of Senvion, who adds that Ireland offers “promising opportunities” for the company.
Turbine components will start to be delivered to the site this summer; installation and commissioning are due to be completed toward the end of the year.
Senvion also has a long-term service and maintenance contract with NTR for the project. This is the second contract signed between Senvion and NTR, following an agreement last year to supply turbines for the Quixwood Moor wind farm in the Scottish Borders.
