The “Skole” wind farm, with a total capacity of 67.2 MW, will be built near the city of Skole in West Ukraine. Installation of the turbines is scheduled to start in March 2022. The fourteen turbines will then feed clean electricity into the Ukrainian grid as of in the third quarter of 2022 at full capacity. The Nordex Group will supply the turbines in the cold-climate version in order to ensure a high level of availability in the cold season as well, said the company.

Eksim has been in wind energy business since 2011, and is now operating eight wind farms with 451 MW total capacity in Turkey, and all of them are built with Nordex turbines. In the sector of hydroelectric energy, which is another section of renewable energy, Eksim holds over 626 MW capacity project portfolio. Eksim’s first HPP, 63 MW Uzundere – I HPP which was built on the İncesu creek, has already been commissioned on May 2010.

With the Skole Project, Eksim and Nordex carried their business collaboration to Ukraine. The Skole project will be Eksim’s first wind park investment outside of Turkey.

“We are pleased to be able to make a significant contribution to the expansion of wind energy in Ukraine with yet another project,” says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group. “We are happy to support Eksim with their first wind project in this country. Today we have capacities of 322 MW in Ukraine connected to the grid.”

The Nordex Group has installed more than 35 GW of wind energy capacity in over 40 markets and in 2020 generated revenues of EUR 4.6 billion. The joint manufacturing capacity includes factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States, India and Mexico. The product portfolio is focused on onshore turbines in the 4 to 6.X MW class, which are tailor-made for the market requirements of countries with limited space and regions with limited grid capacity.
