Turbine manufacturer Nordex has received a major contract for a wind farm with Generation Delta wind turbines and will be delivering the “Moy” project for its customer Eneco in 2015. Comprising 20 N100/3300 wind turbines, the wind farm is to be completed in late summer 2016. In addition, Eneco has opted for Nordex’s premium service contract for a period of 15 years.
The wind farm is located near Inverness in the north of Scotland. The N100/3300, which is designed for IEC1a conditions, will be installed to make optimum use of the strong winds prevailing at this site.
“Nordex has had good and extensive experience on IECa sites in UK in the past. With this project, we have the chance of continuing on this path successfully and of demonstrating the strengths of the N100/3300,” says Nordex Management Board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.
As one of the technological leaders in multi-megawatt wind power systems, Nordex is benefiting from the trend in favour of large-scale turbines. The Generation Gamma range comprises the N90/2500, N100/2500 and the N117/2400, which is one of the most efficient onshore turbines. To date, over 2,600 of these turbines have been produced. This experience with multi-megawatt turbines gives Nordex a decisive lead over most of its competitors. With Generation Delta, Nordex is now offering the fourth generation of its proven multi-megawatt platform (N100/3300, N117/3000, N131/3000). Nordex has installed a total of around 5,600 turbines with an aggregate capacity of around 9,400 MW all around the world. With exports accounting for than 85 percent of its business, Nordex SE plays a key role in international high-growth regions. The Company has offices and subsidiaries in 22 countries around the world with a total global headcount of over 2,500 employees.
