REpower Systems AG and Ormonde Energy Limited (OEL), a subsidiary of Vattenfall AB, concluded an agreement on the supply of 30 REpower 5M offshore wind energy turbines with a total rated output of 150MW.
The turbines are intended for the Ormonde wind farm, on which construction is to begin at the start of 2011 around 35 kilometers away from the town of Barrow-in-Furness on the northwest coast of England. Water depths at the location vary between 17 and 30 meters. The turbine nacelles and hubs are to be manufactured at REpower’s offshore manufacturing and logistics center in Bremerhaven and are intended for delivery from the end of 2010 onward. Vattenfall AB also concluded an offshore service agreement with REpower for a total of five years’ service and maintenance of the Ormonde wind farm.
