REpower Systems and the Belgian offshore project development company C-Power have signed a contract agreeing the delivery of 48 wind energy turbines of the REpower 6M type. Existing REpower clients RWE Innogy and EDF EN both have a share in C-Power as strategic partners.

The turbines have a total rated power of approximately 295MW and are envisaged for phases 2 and 3 of the first Belgian offshore wind farm, Thornton Bank. The installation of 24 turbines for phase 2 is planned for the spring of 2012, and a further 24 are designated for installation during a third extension stage by mid-2013. A bank consortium of seven commercial banks, together with the European Investment Bank are providing approximately € 900 million in financing. The total investment – including the refinancing of the first phase project – amounts up to approximately € 1.3 billion. An export credits guarantee is generally promised by the German government. 55% of the investors come from Belgium. For phases 2 and 3, REpower’s scope of delivery covers  the production and delivery of the nacelles, towers, blades and hubs as well as pre-installation in the port of Oostende. Furthermore, REpower is responsible for the installation, the commissioning and the test run of the turbines.
