Senvion Wins Major Contract in the UK with Banks Renewables

Hamburg, Germany / Edinburgh, Scotland

Senvion will supply 26 of its 3.4M104 turbines for Kype Muir Wind Farm, located in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. The wind farm will have a total rated output of 88 megawatts and will produce enough electricity to power 62,000 homes each year. The wind farm is expected to come online at the start of 2019.

Also located in South Lanarkshire, the Middle Muir Wind Farm will consist of 15 Senvion 3.4M114 turbines, eight at 79 meter hub height and seven at 93 meter hub height. These hub heights will enable the wind farm to take full advantage of variable wind speeds. The wind farm will have a total rated output of 51 megawatts and will produce enough electricity to power over 33,000 homes. Middle Muir is scheduled to go live in 2018.

Located near Darlington in North East England, Moor House Wind Farm will consist of six Senvion MM100 turbines at a total rated output of 12 megawatts and will produce sufficient energy to power 9000 homes. Delivery will start in August 2017 and commissioning is expected to be completed early in 2018.

The three wind farms were all successful in the UK government`s first competitive Contracts for Difference (CfD) programme for onshore and offshore projects in 2015.
