REpower Systems SE, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Suzlon Group, has signed contracts to deliver 103 wind turbines with a total capacity of over 266 MW for 24 community wind farm projects in the Schleswig-Holstein region of Germany.

The contracts were concluded with different contractors that were previously represented by a purchasing association named Schleswig-Holstein GmbH Wind. In December 2012, REpower signed a primary memorandum that assured the participants from 52 projects in Schleswig-Holstein binding conditions in a model contract. The participants could choose the appropriate offer from the final negotiated contracts of four different manufacturers for their own location, and REpower says it has won 55% of all potential wind turbines for itself in this process.

The projects will employ various types of turbines, from the MM82 with a 59-meter hub height to the 3.2M114 with a hub height of 93 meters. Eleven wind turbines are already in the implementation phase and are to be commissioned quickly. The other projects will be completed by 2015.
