Nordex secures 243 MW order for U.S. wind farm
- Manufacturer will supply 81 AW125/3000 turbines in Texas
Hamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group has secured a new, 243 MW wind turbine order for the United States. The manufacturer has completed an agreement to supply eighty-one AW125/3000 turbines to a wind farm in Texas.
The turbines are designed for IEC-2, medium-wind sites. Each turbine will be equipped with a 125-meter rotor and installed on an 87.5-meter tubular steel tower. Installation is expected to begin in early 2017.
This latest deal continues the strong growth of the AW3000 platform in Texas. Other recent orders for AW3000 turbines in the state include the 300 MW \"Green Pastures\" wind complex owned by Capital Dynamics, the 165 MW \"Cameron\" wind farm owned by IKEA and the 93 MW “San Roman” wind farm owned by Acciona.
The U.S. is one of the most important wind markets in the world. The outlook for U.S. wind energy was strengthened by the long-term extension of the federal Production Tax Credit (PTC) in late 2015. With this policy in place, market observers expect wind installations in the U.S. to grow by more than 10,000 MW per year.
Nordex sees great potential in the United States due to the group’s extended product portfolio which now includes the turbines from Acciona Windpower. U.S. customers are particularly enthusiastic about the AW3000 and Delta generation products. To date, Nordex Group has installed a total of 2,380 MW of wind turbines in the U.S.
