Nordex has received an order for 47 MW in Sweden from its regular customer wpd. The Nordex Group supplies eight N163 / 5.X wind turbines for the Stöllsäterberget wind farm. The order also includes a 15-year premium service contract for the turbines with an option to extend for another five years.
The Stöllsäterberget wind farm will be built between the provinces of Värmland and Dalarna in western Sweden, near the Norwegian border. The turbines will be configured in the cold weather version that includes the Nordex Advanced Anti-Icing system for the rotor blades. Installation of the turbines will begin in the summer of 2023.
“We are satisfied with the third order of wpd for N163 / 5.X turbines in the Nordic countries and the renewed trust placed in us. Already in 2022, we will deliver and install 33 turbines for wpd in Finland in the 188 MW “Karhunnevankangas” project and 17 turbines in the 96.9 MW “Nuolivaara” wind farm, ”says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
“Thanks to the successful development of the project, we have been able to constantly expand our strong position in the Northern European market,” says Maria Röske, Managing Director of wpd Scandinavia AB. “With Nordex, we have a turbine manufacturer on our side with whom we can implement our goals for an extensive contribution to the energy transition,” adds Johanna Bohn, Country Manager for Sweden at wpd.
