In Scotland, five N80/2500 wind turbines will be installed at the “Gordonstown Hill” wind farm and five N90/2500 wind turbines at the “Westfield” wind farm. A further twelve 2.5 MW machines will be installed in England at the “Wingates”, “Blackstone Edge” and “Tedder Hill” wind farms. Construction work is to commence this year, with all 22 turbines to start feeding clean electricity into the grid by March 2013 at the latest.
Infinis is already operating twelve N90/2500 wind turbines at the “Lissett Airfield” wind farm, which Nordex installed in 2008. Nordex will be exceeding the 1 GW limit for installed capacity in the United Kingdom and Ireland this year, thus underscoring its strong position in this core market.
“We are delighted to have secured these further projects with Infinis and look forward to building out the five project portfolio with one of the UK’s largest independent renewable energy generators” says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, member of Nordex SE’s Management Board responsible for sales, service and project management.
