This is the eleventh contract to be signed between Senvion and the Innogy Renewables UK Ltd.

All together Senvion is about to deliver 57 MM92 turbines for projects of Innogy Renewables UK. In addition to the delivery order Senvion also concluded five year maintenance contracts for all three projects with the Swindon based company.
