Senvion and Innogy Renewables UK have signed a contract for the delivery of 16 Senvion MM92 turbines for the wind farm Mynydd y Gwair in South Wales. The 32.8-MW-Park is expected to be completed in October 2018.

The Mynydd y Gwair wind farm is located 15 km north of Swansea. Once operational, the project will have an installed capacity of 32.8 MW. Turbine components will start to be delivered to site in April 2018 and installation and commissioning is due to be completed in October 2018.

This is the eleventh contract to be signed between Senvion and the Innogy Renewables UK Ltd. In 2016 the two companies already have agreed on contracts concerning the wind farms Brechfa Forest West and Bad á Cheò. All together Senvion is about to deliver 57 MM92 turbines for projects of Innogy Renewables UK. In addition to the delivery order Senvion also concluded five year maintenance contracts for all three projects with the Swindon based company.
