REpower to supply 23 turbines to Burgundy

The turbines are to be installed in two wind farm projects in the French Burgundy region. 15 turbines of the MM92 type are destined for the wind farm La Bretelle, 8 turbines of the same series are to be erected in the project Echalot. The wind farms will generate a total output of more than 47 MW. With a hub height of 100 m and a nominal output of 2.05 MW each, the deliveries for the construction are starting during summer 2012 and the commissioning is planned in December 2012.
Jean-François Innocenti, Director for construction of La Compagnie du Vent, GDF SUEZ Group, states: “These two wind farms represent the most important project that our company has ever built in France. At the end of 2012, La Compagnie du Vent will almost operate 300 MW of wind energy capacity, of which 80 MW are realised with REpower turbines.”

With a market share of 26 % regarding new installations in 2010 according to Make Consulting, REpower S.A.S., a fully owned subsidiary of REpower Systems SE, was the second largest manufacturer of wind turbines on the French market. The company was established in 2002 and now employs around 150 people.

Sometimes one and one add up to more than the mere addition of numbers. Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) of rotor blades is a complex and demanding task that requires very good hardware as well as professional data analysis in order to be able to make really precise and early statements about structural damage to the rotor blade. For this reason, two specialists have now joined forces to offer wind farm operators the best possible combination of forces on the market.
