In Belgium, Senvion has concluded contracts with customers including EDF Luminus for the Sint Gillis Waas wind farm and Eoly for the Rebaix wind farm. The Belgian wind farms total four wind turbines including 3.4M104 and 3.4M114 turbine types. The installation and the commissioning of the Belgian wind farms are planned for Summer 2019.

In France and Portugal, Senvion has signed contracts with new customers, respectively ČEZ Group and EKZ, the utility of the Canton of Zurich. The French Aschère-le-Marché wind farm, developed by ABO Wind and owned by ČEZ Group, is located in the region of Centre - Val de Loire. Four Senvion 3.4M114 turbines at various hub heights - 79 metres and 93 metres - will be installed and commissioned within the second half of 2019. The 20.4 MW Portuguese wind project, called Marvila II, is located in the region of Leiria and will consist of six Senvion 3.4M122 wind turbines with a hub height at 119 metres. The commissioning is planned for Autumn 2019.

Senvion will provide full maintenance services for a period of 20 years to the EDF Luminus's wind farm and for a period of 15 years with extensions up to 25 years for the Marvila wind farm and up to 20 years for the Rebaix and Aschère-le-Marché wind farms.

Olivier Perot, Managing Director of Senvion Europe South, states: "These projects perfectly illustrate how the modularity of the Senvion's turbine portfolio is a real competitive advantage, providing wind energy at a low LCoE. Senvion's 3.XM platform with different rotor sizes and hub heights can be efficiently integrated in any location, regardless of what the complexity of the sites. In addition, Senvion's flexible approach is also very much appreciated by the clients with diversified profiles, which is reflected by the contracts won with new clients such as ČEZ Group and EKZ. An efficient product portfolio and a tailor-made customer approach are key for Senvion to sustainable growth in its core markets."
