Huge Contract in France
In France, Senvion, one of the world’s biggest wind turbine manufacturers, successfully contracted 74 megawatts (MW) with RES for two wind projects in France. Senvion will equip the Sambrès wind farm with 26 Senvion MM82 turbines, in addition 11 Senvion MM92 turbines have been installed for the Bois de la Serre wind farm. Tother, these will produce enough electricity to power more than 24,600 three-person households (including heating) in France each year. Senvion will provide full maintenance services to the wind farms for a period of ten years with an option to be extended to up to 15 years. Upon completion, the wind farms will save 47,300 metric tonnes of CO2 emissions every year.
Commissioning Scheduled for Mid-2016
The Bois de la Serre wind farm consists of eleven Senvion MM92 turbines, each with a rated power of 2 MW and a hub height of 88.5 meters. The installed turbines have been commissioned by end of December 2015. The Sambrès wind farm will consist of 26 MM82 turbines, each with a hub height of 85 meters. The construction has already started, and five turbines have already been installed. The commissioning of the entire wind farm is planned for mid-2016. Both projects are located in a mountain and forest area where the wind is particularly strong and turbulent. To preserve the forest and avoid cutting down trees, the Senvion turbines were mounted blade by blade and are delivered with specific hub heights to comply with the site conditions.
Senvion’s Largest Wind Park in Poland
In Poland, Senvion was contracted for 14 of its two-megawatt (MW) turbines for a second wind farm near the city of Nowy Staw, located some 50 kilometres south-east of Gdańsk. Both wind farms are operated by RWE Innogy. With a total of 36 turbines, they form the biggest Senvion wind project in Poland to date. With its 22 Senvion MM92 turbines erected in 2013 and the newly installed 14 Senvion MM100 turbines, the wind farm with a total rated power output of 73.1 MW will produce enough green electricity to supply an equivalent of more than 92,250 average Polish households.
After having signed the contract for the 14 Senvion MM100 turbines with RWE Innogy at the beginning of 2015, the installation of the Senvion turbines started in August 2015. Two installation teams with two crane lines erected the turbines with a hub height of 100 meters and finished assembly at the end of September. On 16 October 2015, all turbines were operational, and in December the permit of use was handed over.
With an accumulated swept rotor area of 109,956 m2, which equals the size of more than 15 football fields, the wind farm feeds electricity into the grid via an onsite substation. The substation is connected to an RWE HV-Line leading to the nearby city of Malbork, where it is connected to the distribution grid of the local utility company.
