Senvion SE has concluded a contract with Storm on the construction of the foundations and the delivery and installation of three Senvion 3.2M114 wind turbines in Belgium.

The turbines, each with a hub height of 143 metres, are intended for Meer wind farm located in the province of Antwerp in the northern part of Belgium. With a total height of 200 metres, the Senvion 3.2M114 is the tallest wind turbine ever constructed in the country. With a rated power of 3,2 megawatts (MW), each Senvion 3.2M114 can supply around 2,100 households with electricity.

The delivery and the installation are planned for spring 2015, the commissioning of Meer wind farm is scheduled for summer 2015.

Additionally, Senvion has signed a 15-year full service contract for the maintenance of the wind farm. Meer wind farm is the fourth contract for Senvion with Storm.

The wind farms Westerlo with two Senvion MM92 turbines, Maasmechelen and Geel with respectively two and three Senvion MM100 turbines are now operational in the provinces of Antwerp and Limburg.

Senvion created a service centre in Houthalen-Helchteren in 2014 where six service technicians are currently employed to better serve the Belgian wind farms. 

Senvion has installed a total capacity over 550 megawatts of onshore and offshore wind capacity in Belgium which represents nearly 30% of cumulative market share. In 2014, Senvion installed more than 50 MW in Belgium.
