REpower Systems AG and Energiekontor have signed a contract to supply 18 REpower 5M offshore wind energy turbines for the "Nordergründe" offshore wind farm.
The total rated power will be 90MW. The wind farm project is to be carried out within the 12 nautical mile zone at the mouth of the River Weser, north of Wilhelmshaven. The 18 offshore turbines will be manufactured in the new REpower assembly factory in Bremerhaven, due for completion this summer. They are scheduled to be supplied between April and June next year, and installed at sea in the spring/summer of 2009. The investment volume, including foundation, the offshore voltage transformation station and cabling for the farm, is over € 300 million.
