ENERCON has secured new project orders for 220 MW in Lower Saxony. A total of 6 wind farms with 41 wind energy converters are scheduled for construction from next year onwards in the districts of Oldenburg, Diepholz, Nienburg and Verden.
A corresponding framework agreement between the wind energy converter supplier and the customer consortium Schierloh Engineering and VR Energieprojekte Wildeshauser Geest was signed in Aurich.
“We are very happy that we can continue this excellent cooperation with our regional partners. We have already worked together in a trusting collaboration on projects in Lower Saxony in past years. The fact that we will be driving forward the energy transition together in our region with new onshore projects even despite the difficult current framework conditions in Germany is especially pleasing.”Stefan Lütkemeyer, ENERCON sales director.
“I am glad that, following two years of negotiations with various manufacturers, we have now found a reliable partner from the region in ENERCON. With its new EP5 and EP3 platforms, the company offered the best and most flexible portfolio for our locations. We also gave special consideration to the reliable service offered here in the region. As someone who used to work for the company, it was also to some extent a matter that was close to my own heart.Söhnke Schierloh, managing director of Schierloh Engineering.
The signed framework agreement covered the supply of 41 wind energy converters from the new ENERCON EP5 and EP3 platforms (total capacity 222.6 MW), more precisely, 38 wind energy converters made up of E-160 EP5 and E-147 EP5 E2 models, and 3 E-138 E2 wind energy converters.
“For us, the framework agreement is also an acknowledgement of ENERCON’s latest generation technology. The new EP5 and EP3 wind energy converter types reflect the trend towards a lower cost of energy that is particularly dominant in markets with tendering systems.”Stefan Lütkemeyer, ENERCON sales director.
