Nordex USA Inc. has been awarded an order for 20 N90 2.5 MW wind turbines to be installed at a 50 MW wind farm in Garrett County, Md. The contract with the developer and future operator, Synergics, includes installation and a five-year maintenance agreement.
Nordex will begin delivering and installing the turbines in August, with completion and commissioning of the project slated for December. The Roth Rock wind farm is expected to generate about 124,000 MWh of electricity per year.
The 20 high-speed turbines will stand atop Backbone Mountain along an undeveloped ridge stretching three miles. The project is located in the western corner of Maryland near the West Virginia and Pennsylvania borders.
Purchasers of the wind power will include Delmarva Power, the University of Maryland and other entities in the state of Maryland.
