Nordex Group awarded contract in Brazil

- Order from utility Furnas for a 123-MW wind farm

Hamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group has been awarded a contract for the delivery and installation of the “Fortim” wind farm. With a capacity of 123 megawatts, the project will comprise 41 AW125/3000 turbines. Installation work will be commencing at the beginning of 2019. The customer is the Brazilian utility Furnas, a subsidiary of Centrais Elétricas Brasileiras S.A. - Eletrobras.

The contract also includes service for a period of at least five years. In addition, the project will have a large portion of local content. Thus, Nordex will be producing the turbines at its Brazilian plant and the 120-metre high towers at a further Group facility not far from the wind farm.

The project is located in the state of Ceará in north-eastern Brazil. This coastal location is characterised by strong wind conditions with low turbulence for which the AW125/3000 has been designed. The wind farm will have a capacity factor of a good 40 percent.


About the Nordex Group
The Group has installed wind power capacity of more than 23 GW in over 25 markets, generating sales of around EUR 3.1 billion in 2017. It currently has roughly 5,000 employees. The production network comprises plants in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States and India. The product range primarily concentrates on onshore turbines in the 1.5 - 4.8 MW class addressing the requirements of land constrained as well as grid constrained markets.
