Germany-based Senvion has secured an contract to supply 50MW of turbines for a Total Eren’s wind project in Argentina.
Under the contract, the company will deliver 14 Senvion 3.6M114 turbines for the Malaspina wind project.
The contract is Senvion’s second full Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) deal with Total Eren.
Total Eren, a French developer of solar and wind energy projects, has already secured a power purchase agreement (PPA) for the electricity produced from the Malaspina wind project.
Senvion chief sales officer and executive director David Hardy said: “We are pleased to announce a further construction in Argentina. It reflects Senvion’s global growth strategy and thus our commitment to the promising wind market in Argentina and South America as such.
“With securing the second cooperation with Total Eren, a leading and skillful player of the renewable energy industry, we are furthermore able to confirm our strive for sustainable and reliable partnerships.”
The Senvion 3.6M114 turbines, which will be supplied to the Malaspina project at the east coast of Argentina, will have a rotor diameter of 114 meter.
Senvion said that the 3.6M turbine has been developed to ensure high economic efficiency at challenging locations.
Installation of the turbines is scheduled to start in the first half-year 2019.
Currently, Senvion, a manufacturer of onshore and offshore wind turbines, is agreeing on final terms of further agreements in South America.
The firm said: “The company is establishing a close network of experienced partners in Argentina and Chile since its market entry in 2016. Senvion is committed to further expanding its office in Buenos Aires as a result of recent strong successes in Argentina.”
The company develops, produces and markets wind turbines, with rated outputs of 2MW to 6.33MW and rotor diameters of 82 metres to 152 metres.
Senvion mainly designs its systems in the major TechCenters in Osterrönfeld and Bangalore. The systems are manufactured at its German and Portuguese plants in Bremerhaven, Vagos and Oliveira de Frades as well as in Żory-Warszowice, Poland and Baramati, India.
