REpower Systems AG has secured three contracts with the company Fenland Wind Farms Ltd to supply 22 wind energy turbines, each of 2MW, in the East Anglia region of the UK. Fenland Wind Farms Ltd was established specifically for this project by the French green electricity producer EDF Energies Nouvelles, an affiliate of EDF Group. The three wind parks should be completed and put into operation by spring 2006. The total project turnover for REpower should exceed € 32 million. The ‘Fenland Wind Farms’ will be erected in Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire in eastern England on three sites. The wind parks were developed by the independent British project developer Wind Prospect Group in cooperation with EDF Energies Nouvelles. REpower UK Ltd, a joint venture between REpower Systems AG and the specialist engineering company Peter Brotherhood Ltd, will take responsibility for the construction of the turbines.
