Senvion wins first deal in Argentina totalling 97 MW

Senvion,  a leading global manufacturer  of wind turbines, has secured an agreement  for its first partnership  in Argentina  with EREN Renewable  Energy (“EREN RE”) for the supply and delivery of 27 Senvion  3.6M114 NES turbines .

The  project is still under development  and has certain conditions precedent.

After the planned completion of the project, Los Hercules wind farm will see a total rated output of 97,2MW. The wind farm will be built by Senvion on a full EPC basis.

Jürgen  Geissinger,  CEO  of Senvion,  said:  “Senvion is expanding successfully  – both in terms  of technology  as  well  as  in terms  of geography.  Los  Herc ules  demonstrates  both:  We  developed  the 3.6M114 last year because we considered it the best turbine for key regions in the world and this latest agreement  proves  that the decision was right. At the same time, Senvion is entering the Argentinian market and herewith  strengthens the newly won position in the Southern Cone of South America.”
