Nordex wind power orders from core markets China and Portugal

New business continues to pick up at Nordex. The wind turbines manufacturer has now obtained new orders in two major markets. In China and Portugal the company will be delivering 40 wind turbines in the proven 1.5 and 2.5 MW series in the course of this year.

30 of the wind turbines are going to the Chinese utility Ningxia Electric Power, for which Nordex has already installed more than 160 MW. The S77/1500 wind turbines will be connected to the grid in a wind farm near the city of Wuzhong in the province of Ningxia.

These represent the third and fourth phase in construction of the “Sunhill” wind farm and promise an annual yield of around 90 gigawatt hours.

The wind energy second order is for ten N90/2300 wind turbines in the “Hot Climate” version for the “S. Macário II” wind farm, which Nordex will be installing on a turnkey basis.

The customer is Windway, a joint subsidiary of Infusion (energy division of Grupo Meneses) and of the bank group Banco Espírito Santo. The wind farm is being built in the North of Portugal in the Serra de Montemuro. The expected annual energy yield amounts to more than 72 gigawatt hours.

For Windways “S. Macário II” is the first wind power project in Portugal. Negotiations are in progress for further projects with Nordex in Poland and other European countries.
