Senvion and Heritage Sustainable Energy have executed an 80 MW agreement for the supply and delivery of Garden II wind farm. The first 20 MW are already firm followed by a conditional 60 MW. The agreement includes a 21 year full service contract. The Garden II project consists of 20 Senvion 4.0M140 wind turbines with a hub height of 82 meters. The installation of phase one will start in 2019, the second phase in 2020. The wind power project is located in Delta County, Michigan. The state supports the strategic expansion of renewable energies targeting a 25% renewable energy goal by 2030.
