Suzlon enters Romanian market, forms new subsidiary

Suzlon Group subsidiary, REpower Systems SE, has concluded a contract with P.E. DEUS EX S.R.L., a project company (SPV) of WSB International GmbH, to deliver eight wind turbines to Romania.

The REpower 3.2M114 turbines, each with a rated power of 3.2 megawatts, a hub height of 93 metres and a rotor diameter of 114 metres, are destined for a wind farm project near Margineni (Neamt county, Romania), the company said in a statement.

REpower has already concluded several contracts for projects in Poland and Czech Republic with the parent company and owner, WSB Neue Energien GmbH. The wind farm is set to be constructed and commissioned by autumn 2013, it said.

Meanwhile, REpower Systems DTE Romania SRL -- a Romanian subsidiary -- has been formed with headquarters in Bucharest.

The wind farm in north-east Romania and the launch of the wholly owned subsidiary mark REpower's entry into the Romanian market.

Jan Gasche, Managing Director of REpower Systems DTE Romania SRL said: "The Romanian market boasts tremendous potential that we naturally want to take advantage of for REpower in the coming years."
