The French operator of green energy projects, Valorem, has commissioned the Nordex Group to supply 57 N163/5.X wind turbines for two projects in Finland. Orders also include a thirty-five-year premium plus service agreement.
30 Delta4000 series N163/5.X wind turbines are planned for the “Kalistanneva” wind farm, which was sold by Valorem to a Finnish consortium consisting of HELEN Oy and the Bank of Ålands Wind Energy Fund. The Nordex Group is supplying a further 27 turbines of the same turbine type to the “Matkussaari” wind farm. Here, AIP Management provides flexible long-term financing in partnership with Valorem. Valorem has developed, will build and will operate the wind farm. Both wind farms are located in the Ostrobothnia region.
The “Kalistanneva” and “Matkussaari” wind farms are part of the larger Viiatti project, one of the five largest wind farms in Finland currently under construction. The infrastructure works will start in the spring of 2022. The turbines will be delivered and installed in 2024 on tubular steel towers with a hub height of 148 meters and equipped as a cold-climate variant with a capacity of 5.5 MW. Upon completion, both wind farms will generate approximately 1 TWh of clean electricity, equivalent to a good 1.2 percent of Finland’s annual electricity consumption.
