The contract is mainly concerning REpower’s 3 MW wind turbines.
juwi is planning to erect 180 wind turbines in Germany and another 60 elsewhere in Europe. The main turbine designs to be used are the REpower 3.4M104 and 3.2M114 with hub heights of between 123 and 143 meters, as well as turbines of the MM series with rated power of 2.05 MW.
The wind turbines are to be erected and commissioned between the second half of 2011 and 2014.
Andreas Nauen, CEO of REpower, says: “The signing of the agreement is the result of the first successful pilot projects that we completed with juwi last year.”
Jens Müller-Nielsen, Managing Director of REpower Systems GmbH, responsible for the German market, adds: “We scored points with the high hub heights of our three-megawatt turbines in particular, which make it possible for the customer to operate especially profitably in inland locations.”
