Bremen-based project developer enters into more contracts with turbine manufacturers
Bremen, 14 September 2018.Energiekontor AG has signed contracts yesterday with turbine manufacturer Senvion for the supply of turbines for several wind farms in Germany. An English wind farm is also being equipped with Senvion turbines. The first wind farms are to be commissioned in 2019. Following the contract that was signed on Wednesday of this week, this is Energiekontor’s second agreement for package deliveries of wind turbines.
“We are pleased that our broad product portfolio enables us to precisely meet the requirements of Energiekontor's projects,” explains Knud Rissel, Managing Director Europe, Senvion. “Energiekontor is one of Senvion’s most important customers both in the German market and abroad. And for us, this agreement is another good example of a successful partnership.”
Günter Eschen, member of the Management Board of Energiekontor AG comments, “We attach great importance not only to the profitability of our projects but also to quality, and the reliability of our partners. We are therefore pleased that we were able to convince Senvion, a further renowned turbine manufacturer, to implement wind energy projects with Energiekontor in all our key regions. As we have already successfully completed numerous projects with Senvion in the past, this agreement is based on a solid foundation of trust. We are convinced that we will also be able to participate successfully in auctions together. Moreover, negotiations based on PPAs are becoming increasingly important in Germany. Energiekontor has set itself the goal of making electricity from wind and solar energy more economically viable than electricity from fossil and nuclear energy sources. That is our contribution to our vision: 100 percent renewable energy.”
And his fellow member of the Management Board, Torben Möller, adds, “Similar contracts for package deals are also planned with other turbine manufacturers in order to secure our project pipeline. Energiekontor AG is thus setting a clear signal for the gradual implementation of planned projects in the coming years."
