In March, the Nordex Group received an order from the VSB Group to supply turbines in the 3MW class in Poland. The project developer has ordered 11 turbines for a wind cluster in Poland totalling about 42 MW of installed capacity. The order also includes a Premium Service contract for the turbines covering a period of 20 years.
The turbine type and the project name are undisclosed as per customer request.
In autumn 2022, the Nordex Group will supply and install the turbines. The commissioning is planned to start end of the same year.
“Following projects in Germany and Finland, we are now also pleased to equip Polish wind farms of the VSB Group with our turbine technology and thus contribute to accelerating the energy transition in Poland,” says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group. To date, the Nordex Group has sold turbines for projects over 700 MW in Poland, of which more than 240 MW are currently under construction.
“It was a pleasure to work with Nordex on this important milestone for our first 100% own developed Polish project. We are looking forward to the start of construction work and the turbine delivery next year,” added Hubert Kowalski, Managing Director of VSB Energie Odnawialne Polska sp. z o.o.
