Senvion has signed a contract with Swedish utility Vattenfall to supply 16 Senvion 3.4M104 wind turbines to the 54.4 MW Ray Wind Farm in the U.K.
Located on the Ray Estate near Kirkwhelpington in Northumberland, Vattenfall's Ray Wind Farm will produce enough electricity to power more than 30,000 homes each year. The first turbine installations are scheduled for July 2016.
According to Paul Nickless, Vattenfall's construction manager for the Ray Wind Farm, Vattenfall began construction of the farm this summer.
"We are looking forward to delivery and safe installation of the wind turbines next year and generating green power by the end of 2016 or early 2017 – building on our previous partnerships with Senvion and our other contractors to deliver a safe and successful project," he says.
