Senvion marks 2 gigawatts cumulative installations in the UK
Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, has reached two gigawatts (GW) installed capacity in the UK. Senvion crosses this milestone with the installation of the first turbine at the Dunsland Cross wind farm, owned by an investment fund advised by Temporis Capital LLP, located in Devon.
Senvion UK Ltd celebrated the one gigawatt mark in 2013 and since then has seen significant growth. Last year, the company installed a record number of turbines onshore and was also highlighted as the leading UK manufacturer by installation figures based on research by the annual Onshore Wind Project Intelligence Report published by RenewableUK in October 2016.
Jürgen Geissinger, CEO at Senvion, says: "Reaching two gigawatt installed capacity and leading UK installation figures demonstrate how Senvion remains a key player in the UK wind market. The collaborative, customer-focused approach we adopt ensures Senvion products remain competitive and offer ideal solutions to optimise the range of wind conditions across the UK."
Guy Madgwick, Managing Director of Senvion Northern Europe, added: "We are delighted to reach the historic milestone of 2 GW of installed capacity in the UK. This is the result of years of dedication and commitment by the Senvion team and it also demonstrates the high level of repeat business and customer loyalty that we experience. Our innovative and flexible approach is a key strength in our business relationships and we are committed to building further on the successful partnerships we have developed since we installed our first turbine in the UK in 2005."
