Senvion has secured a contract with Banks Renewables for the supply and installation of 47 turbines for three U.K. wind projects totaling 151 MW.
Senvion has also signed 20-year operations and maintenance contracts for all three projects.
Senvion will supply 26 of its 3.4M104 turbines for the Kype Muir Wind Farm, located in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. The wind farm will have a total rated output of 88 MW and will produce enough electricity to power 62,000 homes each year. Senvion expects the project to come online at the start of 2019.
Also located in South Lanarkshire, the 51 MW Middle Muir Wind Farm will consist of 15 Senvion 3.4M114 turbines – eight at a 79-meter hub height and seven at a 93-meter hub height. These hub heights will enable the wind farm to take full advantage of variable wind speeds, explains Senvion. Scheduled to go live in 2018, the wind farm will produce enough electricity to power 33,000 homes.
Located near Darlington in North East England, the Moor House Wind Farm will consist of six Senvion MM100 turbines at a total rated output of 12 MW. It will produce enough energy to power 9000 homes. Delivery will start this August, and commissioning is expected to be completed early in 2018.
According to Senvion, the three wind farms were all successful in the U.K. government’s first competitive contracts for difference program for onshore and offshore projects in 2015.
“The successful conclusion of these three contracts continues the positive start to 2017 for Senvion,” comments Jürgen Geissinger, CEO of Senvion. “These orders also demonstrate that Senvion provides a strong product fit to match the market requirements and wind conditions in the U.K.”
