Senvion S.A. (called REpower Systems SE until 2014) is a wind turbine manufacturer founded in 2001 in Germany, majority owned by the private equity firm, Centerbridge Partners since April 2015.[4][5][6][7] It was under the ownership of Suzlon, an India wind turbine manufacturer, from 2007 to 2015.

With equipment pricing under pressure due to auctions, Senvion has filed for insolvency in German courts in early April 2019.[8]
