Germany-based Senvion has signed a contract with energy company Innogy Renewables UK to deliver 16 units of MM92 2MW turbines for the Mynydd y Gwair windfarm in South Wales, UK.
Located 15km north of Swansea, the project will have total installed capacity of 32.8MW.
Senvion's Northern Europe managing director Guy Madgwick said: “We are delighted to be working with Innogy Renewables UK once more.
“Since we signed our first contract together for the Ffynnon Oer windfarm in 2005, we have partnered on a number of successful projects and these additional contracts demonstrate the strength of the established and reliable relationship we have maintained for more than a decade.”
Once in operation, the facility will be able to produce enough renewable energy to meet electricity requirements of up to 22,600 average UK homes every year. Under the terms of the contract, Senvion will commence delivering turbine components to the project site in April next year.
Wind turbine installation and commissioning of the Mynydd y Gwair facility is expected to be completed in October next year.
Innogy Renewables' UK Mynydd y Gwair development manager Gwenllian Elias said: “We look forward to the construction of Mynydd y Gwair Windfarm and the Senvion turbines being erected and generating clean renewable energy in the near future.”
