The REpower Systems Group and RWE Group subsidiary RWE Innogy, an onshore and offshore wind energy developer in Europe, have signed a memorandum of understanding that provides for the negotiation of framework agreements with a volume of up to 1,900 MW. The agreement involves 250 offshore wind turbines of the 5M/6M series (5 MW to 6 MW) and approximately 200 onshore wind turbines of the 2 MW class.

The companies plan to conclude negotiations for the framework agreements before the end of the year. The wind turbines would be manufactured and delivered by REpower within four to six years, beginning Jan. 1, 2010.

"Wind power plays a decisive role on our path towards positioning RWE Innogy as the driving force behind tomorrow's technology in Germany and Europe," says Kevin McCullough, COO of RWE Innogy. "Offshore wind farms especially place the highest demands on the technology implemented. I am certain that in REpower we have found a strong partner to push forward our goals in this area."
