Senvion has commissioned 18 of its two-megawatt wind turbines with Martifer Renewables S.A., Poland. The wind farm is in operation in Gizałki, about 90 kilometres south-east of Poznań. It is the third biggest Senvion wind farm in Poland and the biggest with Senvion MM100 wind turbines worldwide. With a total rated power output of 36 MW, the 18 Senvion MM100 wind turbines will produce enough energy to supply 24,300 Polish households, which equals all private households in the nearby city of Konin, with green energy and save 24,000 tonnes of CO2 every year.
The commissioning of the 18 Senvion MM100 wind turbines was finished in July 2015 and they fed their first kilowatt hour (kWh) of renewable energy into the public grid in mid-May 2015. With a hub height of 100 metres and a rated power output of 2 MW, the wind turbines are the first MM100 wind turbines installed in Poland. With a swept rotor area of 7,854 m², the MM100 enables the capture of more wind energy and is ideal for the wind conditions of low-wind sites in Poland. Senvion will provide full maintenance of the wind farm for 20 years.
Senvion has been operating on the Polish market since 2010 and has installed wind turbines with a power output totalling more than 306 MW.
