Turbines of India’s Suzlon Group will be used to develop a wind farm in Romania

Indian and German firms are working together to develop wind energy in Romania. Suzlon group subsidiary, REpower Systems SE, has signed a contract with P.E. DEUS EX S.R.L., a project company of German firm WSB International GmbH, to deliver wind turbines totalling 25MW for the EU country.

The REpower 3.2M114 turbines, each with a rated power of 3.2MW, a hub height of 93m and a rotor diameter of 114m, will be installed at the wind farm near Margineni, Neamt county, Romania. The wind farm is set to be constructed and commissioned by autumn 2013.

Meanwhile, wind turbine manufacturer REpower Systems has founded Romanian subsidiary REpower Systems DTE Romania SRL. The headquarters are located in Bucharest. The wind farm in north-east Romania and the launch of the wholly owned subsidiary mark REpower’s entry into the Romanian market.

Jan Gasche, managing director of REpower Systems DTE Romania SRL, said: “We are pleased to be working with WSB International GmbH as an experienced partner to implement our very first project in Romania. The Romanian market boasts tremendous potential that we naturally want to take advantage of for REpower in the coming years.”
