German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion has won its first contract in the Republic of Ireland, the company announced this week.
Under the contract terms, Senvion is to supply five of its MM82 turbines for the Teevurcher windfarmà‚ project in County Meath, for a total installed capacity of 10.25 MW. Component delivery is scheduled to begin this summer, with installation and commissioning expected towards the end of the year.
Senvion said it had also signed a long-term service and maintenance contract for the windfarm, which is expected to supply power for over 7000 Irish households.
The Teevurcher project is owned by renewable energy investment fund NTR, which had previously contracted with Senvion to supply turbines for the Quixwood Moor windfarm in Scotland.
Senvion CEO Jàƒ¼rgen Geissinger called the contract a “significant milestone” and said it reflects the firm’s global growth strategy.
“The Republic of Ireland offers promising opportunities for Senvion,” he added, noting that the firm’s turbines are “well suited to the wind conditions there.”
