Nordex awarded 57.5 MW project extension in Norway
Hamburg - Nordex’ Scandinavian business continues its strong growth path. The wind turbine manufacturer has now signed the second contract with Norwegian Midtfjellet Vindkraft AS (MVAS), owned by Ostfold Energi AS, EB Kraftproduksjon, Fitjar Kraftlag SA and Vardar AS, for the delivery and installation of another 23 Nordex wind turbines for the phase 2 extension of the \"Midtfjellet\" wind farm.
The combined 110 MW Midtfjellet wind farm will become one of the largest wind projects in recent years in Norway and is being built on the island of Stord. Civil works are currently in the finishing stages with wind turbine deliveries starting mid July 2012 for phase 1, which compromise 21 N90/2,500 turbines.
For phase 2 Nordex will deliver a mix of wind turbines, comprising 13 x N90/2500 and 10 x N100/2500, to maximize the energy yield. Deliveries will start mid March 2013. Both agreements include five-year premium service contracts with option for a further ten years.
Says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, Chief Customer Officer of Nordex SE: \"Securing the combined Midtfjellet wind farm is an important milestone for Nordex and is a strong sign of faith in the Nordex product and organization. We have worked intimately and diligently with MVAS and are well on the track of ensuring the successful execution of the project. Midtfjellet will become the key reference project for our future Norwegian activities.\"
As one of the technological leaders in multi-megawatt wind power systems, Nordex is benefiting from the trend in favor of large-scale turbines. The range comprises one of the world’s largest series-produced wind power systems (N90/2500, N100/2500, N117/2400). To date, over 1,800 turbines of this type have been installed around the world. This experience with multi-megawatt turbines gives Nordex a decisive lead over most of its competitors. Nordex has installed around 4,900 turbines with an aggregate capacity of more than 7,500 MW worldwide. With exports accounting for over 85 percent of its business, Nordex SE also plays a key role in international high-growth regions. The Company has offices and subsidiaries in 22 countries around the world with a total global headcount of over 2,500 employees.
