REpower signs wind turbine supply contract

REpower Systems has signed a contract to deliver 22 wind turbines to wind farm project developer Denker and Wulf for a wind farm to be built in the north-eastern German federal state of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.

The REpower 3.4M104 turbines, each with a rated output of 3.4MW, are planned for the Hohen Luckow project, southwest of Rostock, and will be erected by the summer of 2012.

This is the first major project in which REpower will install the 3.4MW turbines, which have a hub height of 128m and a concrete and steel hybrid tower.

The 22 turbines for the Hohen Luckow wind farm have a total rated output of 74.8MW. In addition to delivering and installing the turbines, REpower will be responsible for servicing and maintaining them.

Since 2001, REpower Systems has constructed 960 wind turbines in Germany with a total output of more than 1,620MW.

Huge turbines that dwarf today’s devices could be the future for offshore wind. Click here to read more (subscription required).
