Hamburg, Germany [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] REpower Systems AG and EPURON GmbH have signed a joint framework agreement for the delivery of 80 wind turbines for international projects. It mainly involves the REpower MM82 and MM92 turbines. The wind farm projects are to be implemented presumably until the end of 2009 in Germany, Italy, France and Australia.
REpower is the third largest German manufacturer of onshore and offshore wind turbines. EPURON, a subsidiary of the listed company Conergy AG, develops, finances and implements major projects in the field of renewable energies.
Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt, CEO of RePower Systems AG, said, “the signing of this framework agreement is evidence of the trust which EPURON has in our international experience in manufacturing and installing multi-megawatt turbines. We look forward to carrying out projects together all over the world and also to the long-term collaboration.”
Joachim Müller, a member of the executive board of EPURON, said, “we have been successfully working together with REpower for a long time on projects in Europe. This and the high degree of reliability and tried-and-tested technology of the REpower turbines were the decisive factors which prompted us to sign this framework agreement for 160 MW.”
The agreement enables EPURON to expand its international growth strategy in the area of wind power. The company is also developing other attractive markets such as India, Turkey and the U.S.
