REpower Systems AG and the French company Akuo Energy SAS have signed three agreements for the supply of 25 wind turbines. The REpower MM92 turbines, each with a hub height of 100 meters and 2.05MW of rated power are destined for the three wind farms Fontaine Macon, Sevigny Waleppe and Saint-Germainmont in the Champagne-Ardennes region, in the Northeast of France.
Together, the turbines achieve a total generating capacity of 51.25MW. From as early as June 2010 on, the first six turbines for the wind farm Fontaine Macon in the Département of Aube are to be delivered and then commissioned in August of the same year. For 2011, the contracts envisage the supply of nine REpower MM92 for the wind farm Sevigny Waleppe as well as ten further turbines for the project Saint-Germainmont. Both wind farms are located in the Ardennes Département; the construction works for both are scheduled for the second quarter of 2011. The projects will be executed by the French subsidiary REpower S.A.S. The company is responsible for delivery, commissioning and service of the turbines.
