The Nordex Group has announced that it has received orders totalling 480 MW from diverse countries in Europe.
The Nordex Group has announced that in December 2019, the Group received orders totalling 480 MW from diverse countries in Europe. The first batch of orders that were won amounted to 308 MW and the main sales market was Turkey with three projects totalling 105 MW. In addition to orders from Spain and Italy, among others, the Nordex Group secured orders in France (68 MW), Finland (43 MW), Germany (34 MW) and Croatia (32 MW).
With 72 turbines, the majority of the orders placed were for the Delta and Delta4000 series turbines with nominal outputs of between 3.0 and 4.8 MW.
Furthermore, the company has also announced that in addition to the already declared European orders received end of 2019, in December it was also awarded on top of those orders a contract to install the Dutch wind farm “De Drentse Monden en Oostermoer” (DMO) as well.
The manufacturer will supply 44 N131/3900 turbines including the foundations with a capacity of 171.6 MW to its customers Duurzame Energieproductie Exloermond BV, Raedthuys DDM B.V. and Windpark Oostermoer Exploitatie B.V.. Together these three projects form the “DMO” wind farm. The firm will also be providing service for all these turbines after installation on the basis of a Premium Service contract for a period of 25 years. The turbine delivery and installation will start in the second half of 2020.
The 172 MW order was awarded on condition that the emission level of electromagnetic radiation would be reduced to a predefined absolute minimum. In order to ensure that this could be done, the Nordex Group developed a predefined, extremely low-radiation version of the N131 turbine and installed the test turbine on-site in the summer of 2019.
“We are pleased to have been awarded the contract for this challenging project. At the customer’s request, we have successfully implemented a new technological solution. Now we can offer our N131 turbines for other projects with similarly demanding requirements regarding minimal electromagnetic radiation,” said Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
