Senvion wins first Norway deal

NORWAY: German manufacturer Senvion has won its first turbine supply deal in Norway, to provide turbines to a 112.2MW project in the south-west of the country.

Senvion's 3.4M114 turbine will be installed at the Egersund project in south-west Norway

Senvion will manufacture 33 3.4MW turbines with 114-metre rotors for the 112.2MW Egersund project in Rogaland for German asset management firm Luxcara. 

Turbine delivery is expected to take place in Q2 2017, with completion due by the end of Q3 next year. 

The 3.4M114 turbine was introduced by Senvion in September 2014 and has been designed for strong wind regions. Senvion will service the turbines for 15 years. 

"The contract for Egersund wind farm is a milestone which reflects the clear global growth strategy of Senvion and its potential to enter new markets with optimally adapted products," said CEO Jürgen Geissinger.
