Nordex Luxembourg Italy

The manufacturer will be supplying seven N131/3300 turbines for the “Wincrange” wind farm. The customer is PW34 S.a.r.l., a project development company based in Derenbach. In addition, the Nordex Group has concluded a Premium Service Agreement covering 20 years.

Moderate IEC Class IIIa winds prevail at the site in the municipality of Wincrange, in the north of Luxembourg. The N131/3300 turbine is specifically designed for such low wind speeds. In spite of the high installed capacity, the sound power levels do not exceed 103 dB (A). Furthermore, the turbines are run in the sound-optimized mode to ensure that they are able to operate at this particularly sound-critical location.

Work on laying the cables in the “Wincrange” wind farm has already been completed and foundation construction is due to start in April. Turbine installation is scheduled to begin at the end of 2019, with grid connection planned for February 2020.

Furthermore, the group has achieved another major success in Italy. A project developer has opted for seven N149/4.0-4.5 turbines. A Premium Service Agreement for a period of two years is also part of the contract.

Recently, the company’s German counterpart Senvion secured a 30 MW contract with Renexia for the first offshore wind farm in the Italian Mediterranean Sea. The wind farm will feature ten Senvion 3.0M122 turbines, installed on monopile foundations in a water depth ranging from 3 to 18 meters.

The installation and the commissioning will take place in 2019. Moreover, Senvion will provide full maintenance services for a period of 5 years with an extension option of up to 25 years. Senvion has specially adapted its 3.0M122 wind turbines to the particularly challenging offshore environment and developed a customized installation procedure suitable for the nearshore wind farm.
