Senvion has signed a deal to deliver 204.7 MW of wind turbines for the Cabo Leones II wind farm in Chile.

The company has signed a conditional contract with GPG and Grupo Ibereólica Renovables for the supply of 89 of its 2.3M130 turbines and a long term full scope service agreement.

The installation of the turbines in the Huasco province in Atacama province, northern Chile, will start in Q1 2020 and is planned to be completed before the end of 2020.

“We are very excited to win our first contract with the wind industry leaders GPG and Grupo Ibereólica Renovables,” said Manav Sharma, acting CEO at Senvion. “We are confident that this turbine will position us strongly in 2 MW class markets worldwide, especially in India. The Cabo Leones II project further solidifies Senvion's market position in Chile and in South America as such and increases our commitment to the local communities.”

Senvion’s 2.3M130 is the newest turbine in its 2.XM platform and is tailored to provide solutions for low wind sites. Gregorio Álvarez, President of Ibereólica Cabo Leones II SA, said: “We are very pleased with the technological effort made by the German group Senvion, for the manufacture of a new model of wind turbine that substantially improves the production of renewable energy adapted to the location of the Cabo Leones II wind farm.”
