Nordex SE has received an order from Leonidas Associates Gmbh to supply and install the Haut Plateau Picard wind farm.
According to Nordex, the contract calls for 11 machines from its N100/2500 turbine platform. The project has been planned on Nordex technology thanks to Volkswind France SAS, a developer and independent power producer.
The project, which was originally planned with slightly less powerful turbines, has been limited to a maximum connected load of 25.3 MW, notes Nordex. The wind farm will be located in Somme, part of the Picardie region in the north of France. The site is characterized by medium wind conditions, which means that the wind farm can be expected to produce an annual yield of around 62 GWh annually.
Nordex will begin turbine installation in spring 2015 with project completion expected in October 2015.
