Turbine maker Nordex has received the first order for its N131/3000 wind turbine.
Launched last year, the N131/3000 turbine model was selected by Finnish asset management company Taaleritehdas, which has ordered the first models from this series.
According to Nordex, two N131/3000 wind turbines will be added to the Myllykangas wind farm. The turbine manufacturer also will erect a N117/2400 turbine to the project. Turbine installation will begin in the fall. The contract also includes a 12-year service agreement.
‘The low noise level of 104.5 dB and the high efficiency of the 3 MW turbine prompted us to enlarge the wind farm swiftly. Quiet turbines with large rotors offer a major advantage in Finland, in particular,’ says Taamir Fareed, director of renewable energy business at Taaleritehdas Private Equity Funds. ‘Nordex has already installed, or is currently installing, three wind farms with a capacity of almost 90 MW for this customer.’
