Nordex Group was again awarded orders for the delivery of wind turbines to France in the third quarter. In 2018, it will be supplying fourteen wind power systems with an aggregate capacity of 37.2 MW.
Starting in February, Nordex will be delivering six N117/3000 turbines for the “Coesmes” wind farm located around 40 kilometres south east of Rennes. The turbines will be installed on the top of 120-metre high towers to ensure maximum utilisation of the good local wind conditions. At the same time, the systems permit quiet turbine operation. The customer is the project developer VSB Energies Nouvelles.
In addition, Nordex will be installing the “Valbin” wind farm near Troyes from April 2018. The project comprises eight N117/2400 turbines and also includes service for an initial period of 15 years. Developed by Eolfi, the wind farm is now owned by investor Leonidas Associates, which will be operating it.
The Group has installed wind power capacity of around 21 GW in over 25 markets, generating sales of EUR 3.4 billion in 2016. It currently has more than 5,000 employees. The production network comprises plants in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States and India. The product range primarily concentrates on onshore turbines in the 1.5 – 4.5 MW class addressing the requirements of developed as well as emerging markets.
