The contract now comprises the supply of up to 140 wind energy turbines of the 2- megawatt class to the European key markets of Germany, France, Belgium, Great Britain, Italy and Portugal before the end of 2008. This corresponds to a total capacity of up to 280 megawatts. A project list for the supply of up to 140 turbines of the REpower MM series has already been defined and has been fixed in the contract. In total, this list comprises twelve projects which are reserved for REpower and which are expected be realised in 2007 and 2008. By signing the framework agreement, both companies envisage extending their strategic partnership in connection with the realisation of wind energy projects in the years to come. Common business activities shall also be expanded to Eastern and Southern Europe from 2008. Once the contract has entered into force, the first projects shall be the realisation of Luc sur Orbieu windfarms in France (eight MM70 turbines in Département Aude, Languedoc-Roussillon region) and the "Bicker" project in the UK (13 MM82 turbines in Lincolnshire). "Our high quality requirements are paying off. Again one of the most important wind developers has chosen us as key supplier", comments the CEO of REpower Systems AG, Prof. Dr. Fritz Vahrenholt, after having signed the contract and adds: "The partnership with EDF EN is until now the most important step for our growth strategy. In addition to this we can jointly enter attractive markets as e.g. in Eastern and Southern Europe."
