Münster, Germany [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] The juwi group has struck a deal with Kenersys Europe to buy wind turbines for its projects. Kenersys is the European subsidiary of Indian company Kalyani Group. Under the agreement, Kenersys will supply juwi with up to 35 K-100 wind turbines, each rated at 2.5-megawatts and 100 meter rotor diameter, over the next three years.
The framework contract is valued at more than €100 million [US $126.35 million]. Kenersys will produce the turbines for juwi starting in 2009 in the north German port town Wismar on the Baltic Sea. Juwi is Kenersys’ first client in Germany.
“We’re always on the lookout for suppliers of reliable wind energy converters because the amount of projects we’re involved in is continuously growing,” says Dr. Marie-Luise Pörtner, juwi’s head of the purchasing department in the wind sector. “Kenersys’ turbine design and its extensive development and production expertise convinced us.”
Juwi said that it intends to install the Kenersys turbines in Germany and other European countries. It will use them in two variations, with 100-meter steel towers and 133-meter hybrid towers developed by the dutch company Advanced Tower Systems.
