REpower wins wind farm order from Renerco

REpower will be supplying eight MM92 wind turbines having a rated output of 2.05 MW each, the company said in a statement. The construction on the Cotton Farm wind farm, which is likely to power nearly 10,000 homes annually, is scheduled to commence in October and is expected to be completed by February 2013.

"This is the second order we have bagged from Renerco. Earlier we won the contract to supply five MM92 wind turbines for its earls hall wind farm in December 2011. The cotton wind farm adds to our growing portfolio with Renerco, and we look forward to working with them again," REpower UK Managing Director Rick Eggleston said.

Since its launch in 2004, REpower UK has delivered 37 onshore wind farms in Scotland, England and Wales and two offshore wind farms.

"2012 will be a busy year for Renerco in the UK. We are glad to have had the opportunity to strengthen our relationship with REpower and work with them to implement our challenging construction schedules for Earl’s Hall Farm and Cotton Farm wind farms."

"Our focus as a developer and owner of wind power projects has always been on delivering highly productive and reliable wind farms, and working with market leading turbine suppliers such as REpower helps us achieve those aims," Renerco Head of Project Development Wind Energy Elke Hanel said.
