It will provide 58 units of 4.2M140 model, which was unveiled in May, as well as ten of its 3.2M114 turbines for the TG East wind farm being developed by Finnish company Taaleri Energia and US firm NorthRenew.
The wind farm is due to be commissioned in 2020, making it eligible to receive 100% of the production tax credit (PTC) before the support scheme is phased out, the developers stated.
As well as supplying the turbine, Senvion will also carry out operations and maintenance at the site in Knox County for 25 years.
The deal for TG East is the manufacturer’s third-large scale order for its 4.2M140 turbine in a month.
Since unveiling the new model at AWEA's Windpower 2018 event in Chicago in May, Senvion has received orders to install a prototype of the turbine at a site in Brandenburg, Germany, for developer Prokon Regenerative Energie, and to provide an unspecified number of units to Alfanar for the Saudi Arabian firm’s Spanish projects.
It describes the 4.2M140 model as a direct evolution of its 3MW series, designed to lower transport, installation and service costs.
