Landwind Group places 82 MW order in Germany with Nordex Group
© Nordex SE / U. MertensHamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group has received an order for 81.6 MW from the Landwind Group. The Nordex Group is to supply 12 N163/6.X turbines to be distributed among four wind farm sections in eastern Lower Saxony, Germany. The order also includes Premium Service for the turbines covering a period of 20 years.
Under the project name “Gevensleben” - named after the main office of the Landwind Group in Lower Saxony - the wind farms are to be built in the districts of Helmstedt and Wolfenbüttel. The turbines in the 6 MW class on hybrid towers with a hub height of 164 metres are scheduled to start operation as of winter 2023. Subsequently the turbines will produce some 180 million kilowatt hours of green electricity, saving up to 128,000 tons of CO2 annually.
"Now we are finally able to make this long-planned project a reality and make a further contribution to the energy transition. As these powerful turbines are ideally suited to this site, we will be in a position to quintuple energy production here. This brings many advantages to our region, which will be reflected in an increase in jobs, trade taxes and the involvement of the public," says Alexander Heidebroek, CEO of the Landwind Group.
Karsten Brüggemann, Vice President Region Central of the Nordex Group, is pleased to note this further display of confidence in Nordex technology by the Landwind Group: "We are proud to be able once again to work together with the Landwind Group and to once more demonstrate the reliability of our technology. With an installed capacity of 6.8 MW, the N163/6.X currently numbers among our most powerful turbines. This enables us to offer our long-standing partner solutions that are tailor-made for the specific requirements of each project and at the same time significantly advance Germany's energy transition."
