Wind turbine maker Suzlon Energy’s German subsidiary REpower has signed a deal with the British renewable energy company Your Energy to supply ten 20.5 MW turbines for its Sixpenny Wood wind farm project.
This is the first contract REpower has signed with Your Energy, a subsidiary of AES Wind Generation, which in turn is a subsidiary of AES Corporation that operates over 1,800 MW wind capacity around the world, the company said in a statement issued.
REpower will be supplying 10 MM92 turbines with a rated output of 2.05 MW which will generate electricity to power nearly 12,000 homes annually, the release said.
"We are working with AES Wind Generation for the first time. We have already installed a number of wind turbines in that area, so we know that the MM92 machine that we are supplying for Sixpenny Wood is ideal for the local wind conditions," REpower England managing director Rick Eggleston said.
The installation of the wind turbines will start in mid- 2012 and the wind farm is expected to be complete by the end of the year, the release said. Since its launch in 2004, REpower has delivered 36 onshore wind farms in Scotland, England and Wales and one offshore wind farm, Project Beatrice, in the North Sea.
However, its largest offshore contract is currently underway, with the company currently commissioning the 30 REpower 5MW wind turbines for Vattenfall's Ormonde wind farm in the Irish Sea, with a total rated output of 150MW.
