Nordex receives first N100/2500 wind energy order from Italy

In addition to this, Seci Energia has signed a wind power contract for at least five years of Nordex Premium Service. The wind turbines will be installed in the “San Biagio” wind farm in Calabria Region as of July 2012. With a nominal output of 25 megawatts, “San Biagio” will generate more than 50 gigawatt hours of electricity a year, sufficient to cover the electricity requirements of some 15,000 Italian households.

“Nordex Italia has more than 500 megawatt of wind turbines connected to the grid, primarily our N90 machine. With `San Biagio´ we will sell the first batch of the N100/2500 for installation in Italy, and we look forward to demonstrating the qualities of this product in mid wind conditions there”, says Nordex CSO Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.

The N100/2500 has become increasingly attractive for investors in Europe and North America, and has been the most frequently ordered Nordex turbine for the past two years. More than 180 N100/2500 wind turbines are on grid today. Italy is the ninth country where Nordex will be installing the N100/2500.
