REpower Systems SE, a Suzlon Group subsidiary, and Bürgerwindpark im Kirchspiel Medelby GmbH & Co. KG, have concluded a €90-million contract for the supply of 27 wind turbines.
Repower CEO Andreas Nauen said: “We are pleased that another community project has selected REpower knowhow. Community wind farms, in addition to orders from our major customers, accounted for nearly 50 per cent of our business in FY 13.’’
REpower will deliver 13 wind turbines of type 3.2M114 with 123 metres hub height, eleven 3.2M114 with 93 metres hub height, two MM92 with 80 metres hub height, and one MM92 with 100 metres hub height. The turbines are scheduled for delivery in 2014.
The community wind farm Medelby is situated in Northern Schleswig-Holstein near the Danish border. REpower has also concluded a service contract for 15 years runtime with an option for five additional years.
“Community wind farms are becoming more and more popular as they enable residents to cover their electricity support with their very own wind farm,” Nauen said.
