Hamburg, Germany [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] REpower Systems AG last week concluded a contract with the WSB Group to deliver 15 wind turbines to Poland. The REpower MM92 turbines each have a rated power of 2.05 megawatts (MW) and a hub height of 80 meters. They are due to be constructed and commissioned at the Lipniki wind farm near Opole in south-west Poland by fall this year.
With a total output of 30.75 MW, the Lipniki wind farm is so far the biggest project undertaken by the Hamburg-based wind turbine manufacturer in Poland. REpower only entered the Polish market in 2009 with the two wind farms Leki Dukielskie and Bukowsko near Rzeszow.
Poland is currently one of the fastest-growing markets for wind energy. REpowers’s CEO Per Hornung Pedersen said that this fact makes the deal with WSB extremely important to REpower Systems AG.
“We can see a lot of potential on the Polish market for wind power. The country is home to many more prime wind locations. We are also delighted to be working alongside WSB in Poland following the successful completion of a joint project in Germany,” he said.
