Nordex, a wind turbine manufacturer with more than 20,000 MW of installed capacity globally, says that it has obtained six new orders for wind farm projects in France.
According to the company, 38 turbines with a combined capacity of 93.3 MW – including 17 N117/2400s, 15 N100/2500s and six N90/2500s – have been sold to different customers. Nordex will provide service for all these machines after installation on the basis of a premium service contract for periods of 10 or 15 years.
The manufacturer says the turbines will be delivered and installed in 2017, and in the case of three of the wind farms, the company was involved in developing the project via its Nordex development division. Further, it is also responsible for the turnkey installation of the turbines, including the transformer stations and infrastructure.
The Nordex Group says it has installed a total of 1.5 GW in France since first entering the market, noting that almost half of the projects were in partnership with Nordex development.
