Nordex awarded contracts worth over EUR 69 million in France - 28 turbines with an output of approx. 70 MW to be constructed in seven wind farms
Hamburg, November 6, 2006 - Nordex AG has been awarded three project contracts for the turnkey construction of seven wind farms comprising a total of 28 N90 turbines in France. The combined value of the contracts for Nordex stands at over EUR 69 million. For its customer Eurocape Nordex will build the "Callengeville" project comprising three wind farms with 14 turbines in Normandy as well as the "Lislet" project with two turbines in the Region Aines. Nordex will be erecting up a further twelve turbines in three wind farms as part of the "Boulay" project for the customers Iberdrola, Poweo and Boreas in the Lorraine region in the north-east of France. For the "Lislet" project the manufacturer will supply two N90 series 2.3 MW turbines on 100 metre towers, for the other projects N90 2.5 MW LS turbines will be utilised. In addition to the delivery of the turbine, the contracts also provide for Nordex to build the access routes, foundation works and handle all electrical work including the transformer and grid connection. The turbines will be producing clean electricity as of the fourth quarter of 2007.
The N90 turbine is currently one of Nordex's top-selling turbines around the world. "With a nominal output of 2.3 or 2.5 megawatts and specially designed for locations with lower average wind speeds, this turbine promises optimum annual yields," says Carsten Pedersen, COO Sales and Marketing at Nordex AG. The mean wind speed at the wind farms above is around 6.6 m/s.
This year, Nordex will be installing wind turbine capacity of over 300 megawatts in France, thus reinforcing its leading position in this crucial growth market.
Eurocape is a rapidly growing owner and developer of windparks in Europe, with more than 120 MW of completed operating projects, and a development pipeline of approximately 400 MW. For further information: firstname.lastname@example.org>info(at)eurocape-mc.com.
