In awarding these contracts, ABO Wind has opted for solutions which Nordex has specifically developed for regions characterised by lighter winds. The project comprises eight N100/2500 and 13 N117/2400 turbines, which with rotor blades measuring almost 60 metres are amongst the most efficient in their class. As part of the wind farms will be located in forests, hybrid towers with an above-average height of 141 meters are being used in all projects to optimise energy yield.
“Germany is of crucial importance for Nordex as our home market is stable and continuing to grow. What is more, the fact that our long-standing customer ABO Wind has opted in favour of the new non-coastal systems marks a key success,” says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, CCO at Nordex SE. Over the past few years, Nordex has also installed numerous wind farms for ABO Wind in France, Ireland and the United Kingdom. “We are currently seeing growing interest in additions to wind power in the southern half of Germany in particular,” reports Dr. Jochen Ahn, a member of ABO Wind AG’s management board. “Wind turbines such as the N100 and the N117, which also achieve high yields in non-coastal locations, are helping to spur the success of the new energy policy.”
