Vattenfall to build 122 MW wind farm in the Netherlands with Repower wind turbines

Vattenfall has signed a 122 MW wind power deal with Repower for a wind farm in the Netherlands. Repower will supply 36 M104 3.4MW wind turbines for the wind farm, which will be located near Zeewolde, in Flevoland.

REpower and Vattenfall to install 122 MW wind farm in the Netherlands. REpower Systems SE (WKN 617703) has concluded a contract with Zuidlob Wind B.V., since yesterday owned by Nuon, part of Swedish Vattenfall, for the delivery of a total of 36 wind turbines. The turbines of the 3.4M104 type are to be installed in a wind farm near Zeewolde (Province Flevoland). With a total output of around 122 megawatts (MW) the project is the largest wind farm in the Netherlands to date held by a single owner.

The turbine type 3.4M104 belongs to the latest generation of onshore wind turbines of the three-megawatt-class and is optimized for locations with strong wind conditions. The turbines have a hub height of 98 metres and a nominal output of 3.4 MW each. The installation of the wind farm is to be completed in spring 2013.

Andreas Nauen, CEO of REpower Systems SE: “After the successful installation of the alpha ventus and Ormonde offshore projects, we are very pleased to work together with Vattenfall also in the area of onshore wind. At the same time we are proud to jointly implement this flagship project – one of the country’s largest wind farms.“
