Senvion Signs Contract for 80 MW Crowlands wind farm

Hamburg, Germany / Melbourne- Australia - Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, has signed a contract with Pacific Hydro to deliver the Crowlands Wind Farm north of Ararat in Victoria in a sign that investor confidence in renewable energy is strong in Victoria.

The project will comprise 39 MM92 wind turbines which will – according to Senvion - produce enough clean energy to supply the power needs of over 50,000 Victorian homes. The delivery of the turbines is planned for the second half of 2018.

As the company points out, Senvion has a strong relationship with Pacific Hydro with service agreements to maintain over 180 MW of Senvion wind turbines in Portland, and the contract to deliver the 14-turbine Yaloak South Wind Farm. Over the past two years, ten of the highest twelve performing MM82 turbines in Senvion's entire global fleet are located at Pacific Hydro's Cape Nelson South and Cape Bridgewater wind farms.

Financial close for the project is expected early next year which will make the Crowlands wind farm the second project financed EPC wind farm using Senvion technology that has achieved Financial Close in the past six months.
