REpower Systems AG will enter the US market. 56 MM92 turbines are to be supplied to enXco Inc., the US subsidiary of EDF Energies Nouvelles in 2007.
An option for a further 19 turbines of the same type was also arranged. REpower is able to enter the US market through a cross-licence agreement concluded with its competitor GE with regard to the use of several patents. enXco is to install the wind turbines on the West Coast of the United States. The REpower development centre in Rendsburg (Germany) has created a technical solution for a 60 Hz version of the MM92 that corresponds to the requirements of the American electricity network. The turbines will be produced exclusively at the REpower production site in Husum and will be prepared for shipping from there. As this is purely a supply transaction, the shift of risk and responsibility with regard to the goods has been arranged free ship alongside ship (FAS). The towers for all the turbines will be manufactured in the US.
