REpower concludes contract for 150 MW project in Oklahoma (USA)

73 MM92 wind turbines with Hot Climate Option / Delivery and installation scheduled for the second half of 2012

(PresseBox) (Hamburg, ) REpower Systems SE has concluded a contract with an East Coast U.S. wind power developer for the delivery of 73 wind turbines. The REpower MM92 turbines with an overall power output of 150 megawatts (MW) are destined for a project in Oklahoma, located in the south-central region of the United States. REpower was assisted by Suzlon Wind Energy Corp as a sales agent during the customer negotiations of this project.

The wind turbines each have a rated output of 2.05 MW, a rotor diameter of 92 metres and a hub height of 80 metres. Due to the climatic conditions the turbines are equipped with the Hot Climate Option (HCO), which eases operation during the dry, hot summer months in that region of the country. The delivery and initial operation of the turbines is planned for the third and fourth quarters of 2012.

Andreas Nauen, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of REpower Systems SE emphasises: "We are pleased to announce our second largest U.S. project to date and supply the reliable MM92 turbines for what will be REpower's first wind farm located in the south-central region of the country. In addition, I wish to thank the team of Suzlon Wind Energy Corporation for the support they provided during the negotiation process."
