Senvion, one of the world’s biggest wind-turbine manufacturers, has signed a major new contract with leading renewable energy developer Blue Energy. Senvion will supply 32 turbines to the developer’s Beinneun Wind Farm in Scotland.
With a total rated output of 108.8 MW, the wind farm will produce enough electricity to power more than 59,000 homes each year. Beinneun will mark the fifth turbine supply contract where Blue Energy and Senvion have partnered in the UK. Senvion has more than 1.4 GW of installed capacity in the UK.
Located near Fort Augustus in the Scottish Highlands, Beinneun will also be Blue Energy’s largest onshore wind-farm project in the UK and will consist of 10 Senvion 3.4M104 turbines and 22 Senvion 3.4M114 turbines.
The turbines are due to be delivered to the Beinneun Wind Farm in Autumn 2016 and the project’s expected date of commissioning is at the end of 2016. Senvion will provide the full maintenance of the wind farm project for 20 years.
Raymond Gilfedder, Senvion Northern Europe Managing Director, said: “We are very proud to have signed the company’s biggest UK onshore turbine contract. Ten years ago, Senvion installed its first turbine in the UK. We have come a long way and this contract marks a huge milestone in our company’s history. This achievement is the culmination of years of hard work by the team. It is evidence of what can be achieved when we build strong relationships with our partners based on trust and respect, like the relationship we have with Blue Energy. We are looking forward to continuing this long standing partnership with Blue Energy moving forward.”
