Hamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group has again received an order from Nordic developer OX2. The Nordex Group will supply 12 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines for the 48 MW Ljungbyholm wind farm. The order also includes a premium service of the turbines with a term of 30 years.
The "Ljungbyholm" project will be built near the town of Kalmar in southern Sweden. The Nordex Group installs the turbines on tubular steel towers with hub heights of 125 metres to achieve a high energy yield and not to exceed the total height of 200 meters.

Once completed in mid-2021, "Ljungbyholm" will feed around 150 GWh of clean electricity into the Swedish grid every year.
