Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, has signed a conditional contract with Nexif Energy for the EPC contracts and maintenance agreements for the 25 turbine Glen Innes Wind Farm in New South Wales and the 59 turbine Lincoln Gap Wind Farm in South Australia.
“We are particularly happy to announce this contract with Nexif Energy, only a short time after being selected as single preferred supplier,” said Jürgen Geissinger, CEO of Senvion. “This highlights the strong product fit Senvion can provide for Australian projects.”
Both wind farms will see the introduction of the new Senvion 3.6M140 turbine into the Australian market. Compared to its predecessor, the energy yield has been increased by up to 20 percent at wind speeds of 7.5 m/s, and the lifetime has been extended by 25 percent from 20 to 25 years. Improvements to the blades have resulted in lower sound in all operating modes. Combined, the projects will deliver more than 300 MW of clean, renewable energy to Australian consumers.
Since starting operations in Australia in 2002, Senvion has installed 218 turbines from the Senvion 2-MW series with a cumulated rated power of more than 440 MW.
