Nordex USA has received an order from wind farm developer RPM Access for the 41 MW Elk Wind project located in Delaware County, Iowa. Nordex's new manufacturing plant in Jonesboro, Ark., will produce the turbines for this project. The contract includes a 10-year service contract, as well as the delivery, installation, commissioning and testing of 17 Nordex N100 turbines.
Elk Wind is a construction-ready project slated for completion in October 2011. RPM Access will own and operate the wind farm, and Central Iowa Power Cooperative will purchase the power through a 20-year power purchase agreement.
