Hamburg, Germany [RenewableEnergyWorld.com] REpower Systems AG has concluded a contract with a project company of 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 metres. They are due to be constructed and commissioned at the Lipniki wind farm near Opole in south-west Poland by the autumn of this year.
With a total output of 30.75 MW, the Lipniki wind farm is so far the biggest project undertaken by the company in Poland.
Poland is currently one of the fastest-growing markets for wind energy which, as the company’s CEO Per Hornung Pedersen says, makes this contract 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.”
