First N100/2500 wind farm in Poland / turnkey installation in France
Nordex has received two new orders from Poland and France. The wind energy specialist is to supply eight N100/2500 turbines for a Polish power supplier in October 2011. In France the private project company “Vent Local” has ordered five N90/2500 machines. Nordex is to build the wind farm of the same name on a turnkey basis with the turbines being delivered in August this year. Both the Polish and the French customer have also signed a Premium Service Agreement for a period of 15 and ten years, respectively.
Nordex will be setting up the Polish project in the north-west of the country. Its annual energy yield is expected to be around 50,000 megawatt hours. It is the first N100/2500 wind farm in Poland and at 20 megawatts is currently the third-largest Nordex project in the country. “We expect the Polish market to continue to perform well. In the future we will certainly also be successful here with our new large turbine, the N117/2400,” says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, CSO at Nordex SE.
The French “Jouy en Pithiverais” wind farm is situated in the Beauce region between Paris and Orléans, where Nordex-Service already has some 80 turbines under contract. The five N90/2500 turbines are to generate almost 32,000 megawatt hours of electricity a year.
