Senvion has signed its first contract in the Republic of Ireland, inking a deal with the NTR's wind investment fund.
Under the terms of the contract, Senvion will supply five MM82 wind turbines for the Teevurcher wind farm in County Meath. Once operational, the project will have an installed capacity of 10.25 megawatts and will generate enough renewable electricity to power over 7000 Irish households annually.
"The contract for Teevurcher wind farm is a significant milestone which reflects the clear global growth strategy of Senvion," said Senvion CEO Jürgen Geissinger in a written statement. "The Republic of Ireland offers promising opportunities for Senvion and we look forward to building on further success thanks to our diverse portfolio of products which is well suited to the wind conditions there."
Turbine components will start to be delivered to the site in summer 2017 and installation and commissioning is due to be completed towards the end of the year.
Senvion also concluded a long term service and maintenance contract with NTR for the project. This is the second contract to be signed between Senvion and NTR following the conclusion of the agreement last year to supply turbines for the Quixwood Moor wind farm in the Scottish Borders.
"We are delighted to conclude our first contract in the Republic of Ireland," said Guy Madgwick, managing director of Senvion Northern Europe. "We are especially pleased to continue our existing partnership with NTR and we look forward to further building on this successful relationship in the future."
Senvion will be exhibiting at the IWEA Spring Conference in Dublin on 28 and 29 March.
