Suzlon subsidiary REpower Systems SE says it has signed a contract with Austria-based Windkraft Simonsfeld AG for the delivery of eight 3.2M114 wind turbines.

Each of the turbines, which will be installed at the Poysdorf-Wilfersdorf III wind farm in northeastern Austria, has a rated power output of 3.2 MW and a hub height of 143 meters.

With a total height of 200 meters, the REpower 3.2M114 will be the tallest wind turbine ever constructed in Austria, according to the company. The turbines will be delivered in the second quarter of 2013, and the wind farm, which will have a total power output of about 26 MW, is scheduled to go online in the fourth quarter.

In addition to delivering, constructing and commissioning the turbines, REpower also will be responsible for maintaining the machines.
