New 900 kW turbine design goes into series production

Germany's Conergy Wind says it has secured contracts for supply of all the main components for its new 900 kW design, which it will make 100 of this year. Only "renowned suppliers" are being used, it adds. Turbine assembly will take place in Conergy's new 5000 square metre production hall in Bremerhaven. Customers will include renewables developer Epuron, a Conergy subsidiary, and other international customers, it says. At present just three prototypes are running, two in Bremerhaven and one in Montecelli near Naples in Italy. Conergy started life as a mainly solar company but is now restructuring towards wind power, divesting its solar thermal and bioenergy activities and shedding 500 jobs worldwide. The move follows a profit warning in December suggesting 2007 losses will lie between EUR 150 million and EUR 200 million. It also warned that its forecast for EUR 1 billion in revenues "will probably not be achieved."
