Nordex is ramping up its presence further in the growth wind power market of Argentina with a follow-up order from its customer AES Generación S.A. The “Vientos Neuquinos” wind farm comprises 24 AW132/3465 wind turbines and is to be built in the province of Neuquén in the south-west of Argentina. AES Generación S.A. has also ordered service for the wind turbines covering a period of at least two years.
As recently as September 2018 AES Generación S.A. placed an order with Nordex for the supply of 30 wind turbines AW132/3300 for the “Energética” wind farm. As in this case, the wind turbines and the 120-metre concrete towers for “Vientos Neuquinos” will be produced locally in Argentina.
AES Generación S.A. is a subsidiary of AES Corporation, which, with its more than 30 years of experience, supplies its customers worldwide with affordable and dependable power via its distribution company and its machines for the production of thermal and renewable forms of energy.

The joint manufacturing capacity includes factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States and India.
