Suzlon group subsidiary REpower Systems SE has signed a contract for delivery and construction of 22 wind turbines in Poland for the country’s biggest wind farm project.
It has signed the contract with WSB Neue Energien GmbH for supply of MM92 turbines, each with a rated power of 2.05 MW, intended for the Taczalin project near Legnica in the Polish province of Lower Silesia, Suzlon said in a statement.
“Construction and commissioning of the wind farm, which will have a total power output of 45.1 MW, are scheduled for completion in August, 2013,” it said on the deal inked yesterday.
Jens M Nielsen, Managing Director of REpower Systems Polska SP, which serves the Polish market, said: “REpower has been operating on the Polish market since 2010 and since then has sold wind farms with a power output totalling more than 200 MW. The Taczalin project is our biggest-ever in Poland“.
In August 2011, Dresden-based WSB commissioned a wind farm near Opole, its first in Poland. Now, 15 REpower MM 92 turbines supply around 41,000 households with eco-friendly electricity.
REpower has already set up two service support points in Poland for the maintenance of its turbines installations there, the release said.
