Suzlon Group subsidiary REpower Systems SE has bagged an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract from Mitsui & Co (Australia) Ltd to deliver 52 wind turbines with a total rated output of 106.6 MW for the Bald Hills wind farm in Victoria, Australia.

 The turbines are to be delivered in Q2 next year, to be commissioned a year later. They are expected to produce up to 380,000 MWh of electricity per year, enough to power over 62,000 homes.

 The contract, first with Mitsui and the largest full-turnkey contract for REpower in Australia to date, is combined with a service contract for the next 10 years, with a further five-year option.

 Andreas Nauen, CEO, Repower, said: “This is a milestone for our business in Australia. We now look forward to delivering the Bald Hills Wind Farm in collaboration with Mitsui.”

 The REpower MM92 turbines, each with a rated power of 2.05 MW, a hub height of 80 metres and a rotor diameter of 92.5 metres, are destined for the wind farm near Tarwin Lower, two hours from Melbourne in South Gippsland, Victoria.
