Repower wins 16MW UK order

UK: German manufacturer Repower is to supply turbines for the 16.4MW Cotton Farm wind farm in Cambridgeshire, England.

The project will use Repower's MM92 turbine

Developer Renerco’s scheme will use eight of REpower’s 2.05MW MM92 turbines and will generate enough electricity to power 10,000 homes annually, the company said.

The deal is the second between the two companies in recent months, with REpower supplying five of its MM92 turbines to Renerco’s Earls Hall wind farm in Essex in a contract signed in December.

Cotton Farm will be built on an old airfield site and is due to begin on site in October this year. Completion is slated for February 2013.
