Germany-based Senvion has signed a contract to supply and commission 275MW of wind turbines for the TG East Wind Project in the US.

As per the terms of the contract, Senvion will be supplying 58 4.2M140 turbines with a hub height of 110m and ten Senvion 3.2M114 turbines at 93m hub height.

"We are excited to be back in the US and see this as a showcase project for our new and highly competitive 4.2M140."

Located in Knox County, Texas, TG East Wind Project is owned by Taaleri Energia and will have the capacity to generate over one million megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable electricity per year.

Renewable energy development firm NorthRenew will co-develop the project along with Taaleri.

Senvion Holding executive director and chief sales officer David Hardy said: “We are excited to be back in the US and see this as a showcase project for our new and highly competitive 4.2M140.

“Obviously, size is one thing, but lowest LCoE is really what is driving the decision for Taaleri and NorthRenew and we are glad to have helped them realise this project and bring it to fruition.”

Under the contract, Senvion will also provide 25-year full-service operations and maintenance for the project, which is slated to begin its commercial operations in 2020.

Taaleri Energia North America president Don Curry said: “The TG East Wind Project represents the expansion of Taaleri’s global footprint into the North American marketplace as a leading sponsor, and it is a great addition to our portfolio. The project has very favorable attributes, and offers a superb opportunity to advance towards commercial operations alongside our partners, Senvion and NorthRenew.”
