The Nordex Group receives order for 43 MW from ABO Wind from Finland
Hamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group has received an order from its major customer ABO Wind for the supply and installation of nine N149/4.0-4.5 turbines for the Finnish project "Kokkoneva". The turbines will be supplied in the 4.8 MW operating mode. The contract also includes a premium service contract of the turbines for the term of 15 years with an extension option to 25 years.
The 43.2 MW wind farm "Kokkoneva" will be built south of Kestilä in the municipality of Siikalatva in north-eastern Bottnia, not far from Lake Oulujärvi. The Nordex Group supplies the wind turbines in the cold climate version and installs them on tubular steel towers with a hub height of 155 metres. This enables the turbines to generate the highest possible yield at the site, which has an average annual wind speed of 7.4 m/s. The start of the installation is scheduled for the second half of 2021.
In 2019, ABO Wind was awarded the contract to operate the “Kokkoneva” wind farm in the first technology-neutral tender for renewables in Finland. "This underlines that we are one of the leading project developers in Finland," says Aapo Koivuniemi, Managing Director of ABO Wind Oy, the Finnish subsidiary of ABO Wind. The company, which has only been active in Finland since 2013, has already connected almost 100 megawatts itself to the grid and sold project rights amounting to more than 210 megawatts in the development phase. In the meantime, 22 employees from the Helsinki office are working on projects with a total volume of more than 1.5 gigawatts.
"We are very pleased with the renewed confidence in our technology and service expertise from ABO Wind. With this order, we are further expanding our position in the important wind market in Finland, where we have been active for a decade now and have achieved a leading position”, says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group. ABO Wind is since 15 years a long-standing customer of the Nordex Group with wind farm projects in Germany, France, Ireland and Finland so far.
