Nordex Group obtains order for 93 MW from Spain
Hamburg (renewablepress) - Business in Spain is picking up again for the Nordex Group. At the end of May 2019 the turbine manufacturer received an order from Grupo Enhol, a Spanish project developer. All in all, the Nordex Group will supply and install 27 AW132/3465 turbines with a rated capacity totalling 93.55 megawatts for its new customer. The order also includes a Full Service Contract covering 10 years with an option to extend for a further 10.
The "Cabanillas" project with 15 turbines and "Ablitas" project with 12 turbines are to be built in the municipalities of Cabanillas and Ablitas in the province of Navarra in the north of Spain. Turbine installation is scheduled to begin in March and commissioning is planned to commence in June 2020. With average wind speeds of 7 m/s the wind farms boasts a capacity factor of between 42.5 and 45 percent.
The two wind farms will produce around 320 GWh of clean electricity a year. Grupo Enhol is to sell the electricity to the energy supplier Factorenergia over a period of 20 years on the basis of a Power Purchase Agreement. Such an agreement regulates the purchase and sale of electricity between two parties, without an intermediary, the buyer acquiring a certain amount of energy at a fixed price and within a fixed time frame. With a term of 20 years, this is the longest Power Purchase Agreement in Spain to date.
