Hamburg, Germany [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] REpower Systems AG has signed a delivery agreement for up to 143.5 megawatts (MW) of wind turbines with the enXco, an EDF Energies Nouvelles company. The 70 REpower MM92 turbines, each with a rated power of 2.05 MW and rotor diameter of 92.5 meters, are set to be installed at a wind project on the West Coast of the U.S. Delivery of turbines is expected to take place in mid-2011.
“This order reflects our need to secure turbines for the recovering West Coast market where enXco is very well positioned due to the quality of the sites we have secured in California and the Pacific Northwest”, said Tristan Grimbert, president & CEO of enXco. “This conditional order demonstrates our continued strength in project development and ability to successfully procure turbines.”
REpower and enXco have already been cooperating in the USA since 2006 and have implemented a series of wind farm projects in the US states of California, Washington and Indiana. All together, REpower USA Corp has installed or sold 390 wind turbines in the U.S. market.
“This agreement is a further sign of confidence by enXco in our reliable technology, which we now can demonstrate with nearly 800 megawatts of installed or sold capacity in the USA,” said Hornung Pedersen, REpower’s CEO.
