PUNE, India,  and  HAMBURG, Germany,  Oct.  31, 2013  /PRNewswire/  -  REpower 
Systems SE,  a wholly  owned subsidiary  of  the Suzlon  Group -  the  world's 
fifth-largest* manufacturer of wind turbines -  will change its name in  2014: 
thereafter the company will be called Senvion.

REpower has been using its name under licence since 2001. The rights belong to
a Swiss company  that is now  using this name  itself. Therefore the  external 
corporate design will be gradually changed.

The Hamburg-based wind  turbine manufacturer will  thereafter identify  itself 
using the new brand image worldwide. Andreas Nauen, CEO of REpower Systems SE,
said: "This is an important development  for us. In addition to having  unique 
products and  services, we  will also  be  the only  company with  this  name. 
Senvion may be  associated with  'innovation', 'energy' and  'wind', and  this 
underlines our focus on renewable energies. As Senvion we will continue  along 
our path as a strong brand and remain an innovative company in the wind energy

The transition to the new  corporate design will take  place in the New  Year. 
The company will present its future brand image after entry in the  commercial 
register. Only then will the  changeover become official. The announcement  of 
the new name was agreed for 2013 with the licensor.
