REpower Systems has signed contracts to deliver 103 wind turbines with a total capacity of over 266MW for 24 community wind farm projects in the Schleswig-Holstein region of Germany.
The contracts were concluded with different contractors who were previously represented by a purchasing association. REpower signed a primary memorandum with the purchasing association, “Schleswig-Holstein GmbH Wind”, in December 2012. This memorandum assured the participants from 52 projects in Schleswig-Holstein binding conditions in a model contract. The participants could choose the appropriate offer from the final negotiated contracts of four different manufacturers for their own location. REpower has won 55 per cent of all potential wind turbines for itself in this process. The projects will employ various types of turbines from the MM82 with 59 metres hub height, to the 3.2M114 with a hub height of 93 metres. 11 wind turbines of the signed projects are already in the implementation phase and are to be commissioned soon. The other projects will be completed by 2015.
