In January 2011 the wind turbine manufacturer is to install the first six N90/2500 wind turbines at the “Grouselodge” Wind Farm. This is located in County Limerick and will supply some 67 gigawatt hours of clean energy each year. “Grouselodge” belongs to ESB International, an investor and wind power plant operator, for which Nordex has already built the N90/2500 “Crockagarran” wind farm this year.
The other six wind turbines from the N80/2500 strong-wind series will be constructed by Nordex to the south of Londonderry city at the “Curryfree” wind farm. “Curryfree” wind farm was developed and is being constructed by Renewable Energy Systems Ltd (RES). The wind farm is owned by ESB International, and will produce a yield of 50 gigawatt hours a year.
RES, ESB and Nordex have been partners for a number of years. This partnership has installed wind turbines in Northern Ireland with a total capacity of 75 MW.
“We have built up a strong customer base of internationally successful developers and power plant operators in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The new orders from RES and ESB show that the performance of our turbines completely fulfils expectations. We are looking forward to continuing to work together with them in the future“, says Bryan Grinham, CEO of Nordex UK and Ireland.
