Suzlon signs major contract for German offshore project

- By Charlotte Stubben

Suzlon has signed a deal for the biggest-ever offshore project with REpower turbines.

Suzlon Group-subsidiary REpower Systems SE has signed a contract with PNE Wind AG to deliver 54 offshore wind turbines.

The 6M turbines, each with 6,150 kW of rated power, are intended for the Gode Wind I wind farm. The project is based in the German North Sea, around 35 km north of the East Frisian Islands in the Exclusive Economic Zone of Germany.

The wind turbines are set to be installed and commissioned in 2015.

At the Gode Wind I site, the water is between 28 and 34 meters deep.

A real breakthrough
Mr. Andreas Nauen, CEO - REpower Systems SE, stated: “We are delighted that PNE, one of the most successful German developers, is placing its trust in our 6M. PNE is also one of the first developers in Germany to switch to multi-megawatt turbines with an output in excess of 5 MW. This is a real breakthrough, particularly for the numerous future projects in even deeper water.”

The most powerful wind turbine
The REpower 6M is the most powerful wind turbine ever to be installed on the high seas anywhere in the world. The turbine is produced in Bremerhaven, Germany. In 2009, three prototypes of the REpower 6M were installed onshore at the Ellhöft wind farm, near the German-Danish border. The first offshore installations were recently erected in the Belgian Thornton Bank wind project. REpower has already sold 150 of this type of turbine, including Gode Wind.
