Senvion wins three windfarm deals in UK

German wind turbine manufacturer Senvion has clinched contracts for three wind farms totalling 151 MW in the UK.

The deal is with British company Banks Renewables and will see Senivon supply and install 47 turbines. It has also signed 20-year operations and maintenance contracts for all three projects.

Senvion will supply 26 of its 3.4M104 turbines for Kype Muir Wind Farm, located in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. The wind farm will have a total output of 88 MW and is expected to come online at the start of 2019.

Also located in South Lanarkshire, the 51 MW Middle Muir Wind Farm will consist of 15 Senvion 3.4M114 turbines, eight at 79 metre hub height and seven at 93 metres. It is scheduled to go live in 2018.

The third wind farm is near Darlington in northeast England. Moor House Wind Farm will consist of six Senvion MM100 turbines at a total rated output of 12 MW. Delivery will start in August this year and commissioning is expected to be completed early in 2018.

The three wind farms were all part of the UK government’s first competitive Contracts for Difference programme for onshore and offshore wind à‚ projects in 2015.

Senivon chief executive Jàƒ¼rgen Geissinger said the three contracts “continues the positive start to 2017 for Senvion”.

Richard Dunkley, managing director of Banks Renewables, said: “Onshore wind in general and these projects in particular represent the best value for money to consumers as the government seeks to deliver on its climate change obligations, and it’s exciting to now be accelerating the process of taking these wind farms forward.”
