Another large order for Nordex in China - Utilities order 57 megawatts / project extension already planned
Hamburg - Nordex acquires the next orders in the People’s Republic: the Chinese utilities Beijing Energy and Ningxia Electric Power have ordered a total of 38 wind turbines from the S77/1500 series. The turbines are due to start operation as early as the summer of this year.
With 33 machines, the \"Keyouzhongqi\" wind farm, owned by the customer Beijing Energy, accounts for the larger part of the deliveries now agreed. At the site in Inner Mongolia temperatures can reach as low as 30 degrees below zero. For this reason Nordex is supplying the cold-climate version of the turbines. With an expected annual yield of around 120 gigawatts, \"Keyouzhongqi\" is able to supply some 70,000 Chinese households with clean electricity.
This wind farm is not the first joint project for Nordex and Beijing Energy: the wind turbine manufacturer has already put around 100 megawatts on grid for its Chinese customers.
As of May, Nordex will also be providing five turbines for Ningxia Power’s \"Taiyanshan\" and \"Mahuangshan I\" wind farms. In addition to this, there are plans to extend the \"Mahuangshan II\" project. Nordex is installing the wind farms in the province of Ningxia, where the turbine manufacturing facility jointly operated by Nordex and Ningxia Power is located.
Ningxia Power last placed a substantial order with Nordex in autumn last year. The 22 turbines from the new S82/1500 series, especially designed for inland locations, and the proven S77/1500 are now in operation.
