According to reports, Suzlon Group-subsidiary REpower Systems today bagged an order to supply 19 wind turbines, each having a power of 2.05 MW, from RWE Innogy for its Nowy Staw wind farm project in Poland.
The wind farm project, spread across 15 sq km and sceduled to be commissioned in early 2013, has a potential to generate enough power to meet the needs of more than 50,000 homes every year, Suzlon said in a statement.
“With Nowy Staw, we are expanding our wind portfolio in Poland by almost 40 MW. This will bring us a step closer to our goal of adding 50 MW of wind capacity in Poland every year until 2015. Our Polish wind pipeline is well filled. All in all, Innogy plans to have around 300 MW in operation in Poland by 2015,” RWE Innogy Chief Executive Fritz Vahrenholt said.
This is REpower’s largest project in Poland, the company said.
“With Nowy Staw we are implementing our largest project in Poland so far. The site in the north of the country with its average wind velocities is optimally suited to accommodate the REpower MM92 turbines. Till date, we have installed more than 2,000 plants of the MM series all over the world,” REpower Chief Executive Andreas Nauen said.
