Indian and German wind firms in 45MW turbine deal for Poland

Suzlon Group subsidiary REpower and WSB signs 22 turbine contract for Poland

The BRIC-EU turbine deal will provide Poland with 45MW of wind power

The subsidiary of a leading Indian wind firm is working with a German renewable energy company to boost wind power in Poland by 45MW. Subsidiary of India’s Suzlon REpower Systems SE and WSB Neue Energien GmbH has signed a contract for the delivery and construction of 22 REpower MM92 wind turbines to Poland.

The turbines, each with a rated power of 2.05MW, are intended for the Taczalin project near Legnica in the Polish province of Lower Silesia. Construction and commissioning of the wind farm, which will have a total power output of 45.1MW, are scheduled for completion in August 2013.

After signing the contract, Jens Müller Nielsen, managing director of Repower Systems Polska SP.z.o.o, which serves the Polish market, said: “REpower has been operating on the Polish market since 2010 and since then has sold wind farms with a power output totalling more than 200 MW. The Taczalin project is our biggest ever in Poland.”
 
“We are delighted to continue our successful cooperation with REpower, a strong partner with whom we can accelerate our already burgeoning growth in international activities,” added Andreas Dorner, managing director of WSB Neue Energien GmbH.

In August 2011, Dresden-based WSB commissioned a wind farm near Opole, its first in Poland. Now, 15 REpower MM 92 turbines supply around 41,000 households with eco friendly electricity.

REpower has already set up two service support points in Poland for the maintenance of its turbines installations there.
