Suzlon Group subsidiary REpower Systems SE has signed a contract with Austrian operator Windkraft Simonsfeld AG for the delivery of eight 3.2M114 wind turbines.
The wind turbines will be delivered in the second quarter of 2013 and the Poysdorf-Wilfersdorf III wind farm in the north-east of Austria, for which they are intended, is scheduled to go live in the fourth quarter.
The turbines, each with a rated power output of 3.2 megawatts (MW) have a hub height of 143 metres. With a total height of 200 metres, the REpower 3.2M114 is the tallest wind turbine constructed in the country.
In addition to delivering, constructing and commissioning the turbines, the Hamburg-based company is also responsible for maintaining them and will conclude a 20-year integrated service package (ISP) contract with Windkraft Simonsfeld AG. The contract was signed at HUSUM WindEnergy 2012.
REpower has already constructed five 2.05 MW turbines at the Dürnkrut wind farm for Windkraft.
Jens Müller-Nielsen, Managing Director of REpower Systems GmbH, which serves the Austrian market, said, “The Austrian market offers huge potential that we are keen to leverage for the benefit of REpower too. This is why we plan to further strengthen our activities here in the future.”
