Suzlon Group enters Romanian wind energy market

REpower Systems SE, a subsidiary of Suzlon Group, has concluded a contract with P.E. DEUS EX S.R.L., a project company of WSB International GmbH, to deliver eight wind turbines to Romania. The eight Repower 3.2M114 turbines, each with a rated power of 3.2 MW, a hub height of 93 m and a rotor diameter of 114 m, are destined for a wind farm project near Margineni (Neamt county, Romania), which is set to be constructed and commissioned by autumn 2013. At the same time, the Hamburg-based wind turbine manufacturer has also founded REpower Systems DTE Romania SRL, a Romanian subsidiary. The headquarters is located in Bucharest.

The wind farm in north-east Romania and the launch of the wholly owned subsidiary mark REpower’s entry into the Romanian market. “We are pleased to be working with WSB International GmbH as an experienced partner to implement our very first project in Romania,” says Jan Gasche, Managing Director of REpower Systems DTE Romania SRL. “The Romanian market boasts tremendous potential that we naturally want to take advantage of for REpower in the coming years,” Gasche continues.

REpower has already concluded several contracts for projects in Poland and the Czech Republic with WSB International’s parent company and owner, WSB Neue Energien GmbH.  “REpower is a reliable and important partner for us in the implementation of wind farm projects. We strive to deliver the highest quality from the planning phase right up to the commissioning of the farm, and the wind turbines are a core element of this,” says Stefan Hain, Managing Director of WSB International GmbH.
