Nordex Group Bags Another Major Order For its N149 Turbine in Australia

The expected volume of electricity to be produced by the wind farm equates to the annual consumption of some 115,000 households and is equivalent to a saving of 532,000 tons of toxic CO2 per annum.

Nordex Group has been awarded a contract to supply and install 35 wind turbines for the Mortlake South Wind Farm project located in the state of Victoria in the south-east of Australia for its customer Acciona Energy Australia.

“In addition to our successful sales in Europe, we are now increasingly meeting with significant interest in the N149 turbine in other international sales regions, like recently in Argentina and now in Australia. This order is yet another indication of the confidence placed in our state-of-the-art technology,” says Patxi Landa, Chief Sales Officer of Nordex Group.

In September 2018, Mortlake South Wind Farm was successful in the Victorian VRET (Victorian Renewable Energy Targets) auction process. The Mortlake South Wind Farm will use turbines with a capacity of 4.5 MW each. Infrastructure works have already commenced and the completion of the wind farm is expected in mid-2020.

The N149/4.0-4.5 is ideal for this site, which is located some 6 kilometers from the town of Mortlake and has average annual wind speeds of 7.7 meters a second. Thanks to its grid compatibility, it can be perfectly adapted to the individual grid connection requirements of the Australian market. The N149/4.0-4.5 has been designed to meet the grid requirements of the most demanding grid connection directives worldwide – a key criterion for choosing this turbine for Mortlake South.

The expected volume of electricity to be produced by the wind farm equates to the annual consumption of some 115,000 households and is equivalent to a saving of 532,000 tons of toxic CO2 per annum.

After the Gunning, Waubra and Mt Gellibrand projects, all of which use turbines from the AW platform, Mortlake South is the first order from Acciona Energy Australia with turbines from the Delta4000 generation. The Nordex Group has installed 370 MW in Australia and has had a branch in Melbourne since July 2017.

Recently, the company bagged an order for supplying 38 wind turbines with a combined capacity of 166 MW in Argentina. The contract for the wind farm has been awarded by Genneia, a renewable energy Independent Power Producer (IPP) in Argentina. Nordex is already installing the Argentinean Pomona I & II projects (113,1 MW) for the company.
