Nordex has received an order from an international project developer in the United States. Starting in the spring of 2020 the company will be installing a wind farm with 63 AW125/3150 wind turbines with a combined rated output of 198 megawatts. The order utilizes some equipment from a “safe harbor” transaction dating back to 2016. The Nordex Group received advance payment for these components and produced them in the same year. Through the 5% Safe Harbor qualification, “Safe harbor” equipment purchased in 2016 can qualify customers’ projects for the 100% Production Tax Credit if placed in service by the end of 2020.
The project is being built in Texas. With a hub height of 87.5 metres, the turbines are being installed on steel towers.
