Senvion pockets Crook Hill order
37.4MW turbine deal confirmed with InfraRed Capital Partners
Senvion has confirmed a deal to supply turbines at the 37.4MW Crook Hill wind farm in East Lancashire for global investment management company InfraRed Capital Partners.
Under the agreement, reported exclusively in subscriber-only newsletter reNews in May, the manufacturer will supply 11 3.4MW machines at the scheme just north of Rochdale.
Construction is due to start in April 2015 with the plant slated for completion and project handover by July.
InfraRed Capital Partners has appointed Partnerships for Renewables as construction manager. PfR has worked with Senvion previously and recently opened the Oakdale wind farm in Caerphilly, Wales, which features the first serial-produced Senvion MM100 turbines.
Senvion Northern Europe managing director Raymond Gilfedder said: “We are delighted to be signing our first contract with InfraRed Capital Partners and to be continuing our relationship with PfR. This major new order continues what has been an excellent year for Senvion so far.”
InfraRed Capital Partners team head for environmental infrastructure James Hall-Smith added: “We are pleased to be working with Senvion to deliver Crook Hill, which will add to our portfolio of environmental infrastructure assets sourced, as are many of our opportunities, from partnerships in the industry.”
