REpower to supply wind turbines for Canadian wind farm projects

REpower Systems SE (WKN 617703) has concluded a contract with WindWorks Power Corp. for the delivery of a total of 25 wind turbines for five wind energy projects in Ontario (Canada). Five MM92 CCV wind turbines (cold climate version) are destined for each of the wind farms Settlers Landing, Snowy Ridge, Grey Highlands, Cloudy Ridge and Clean Breeze, all located in the vicinity of Oshawa (Province of Ontario). The wind power farms will generate a total output of more than 50 megawatts.

With a nominal output of 2.05 MW each and a hub height of 100 meters, the wind turbines are scheduled to be delivered in the spring of 2013 and put into operation in the summer of the same year.

Only in May, REpower announced plans to deliver 15 wind turbines for wind energy projects run by WindWorks in Ontario. Andreas Nauen, CEO of REpower Systems SE commented: “We are pleased that we have been able to conclude wind power contracts for a total of eight wind farms in Ontario. The cold climate version of the REpower MM92, specifically equipped for use in locations with damp weather conditions and major temperature fluctuations, is very well received by the Canadian market.” In February 2010, REpower installed two pilot units of this type in Québec (Canada) and has since then sold a total of almost 250 wind turbines of the MM series in the growing Canadian market.

Helmut Herold, Managing Director of the Canadian REpower subsidiary REpower Systems Inc., stated: “These additional wind power projects with WindWorks show that the collaboration is functioning in an outstanding way. For Ontario, these projects not only serve to expand important renewable energy sources in the region, but also create numerous jobs and help support the local economy.”

REpower Systems Inc., the Canadian subsidiary of REpower Systems SE, was founded in 2007 with headquarters in Montréal (Québec) and a sales office in Toronto (Ontario).
