Nordex has received an order for 105 MW from Serbia, marking the company’s entry into the Serbian market. In the spring of 2023, the Nordex Group will supply 22 N149/4.X wind turbines of the Delta4000 series for the “Krivaca” wind farm. The order also includes a Premium Service contract for the turbines covering a period of 25 years.
The “Krivaca” wind farm was developed by the Austrian wind farm developer Ivicom and in the future will be operated by the MK group from Serbia and the Green Energy Fund ALFI from Slovenia.
Mihailo Jankovic, CEO of MK Group: “As a leader in green energy production in the Adriatic region, we are expanding further in this field. Alone and in joint ventures we are developing wind energy projects with a total capacity of 800 MW and solar energy projects of 660 MW, which means investing 1,000 million euros in the next 5 years”.
Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group: “We are pleased to take this first step into the very promising Serbian market with the Krivaca project. We are very motivated to start our collaboration with the Serbian group MK and the Slovenian ALFI Green and look forward to supporting them in their sustainable electricity production with our technology.”
The project is being installed in the area of ??the municipalities of Golubac, Kucevo and Veliko Gradiste in eastern Serbia, about 150 kilometers east of Belgrade. It will be the first wind farm in eastern Serbia.
The Nordex Group will supply the N149 turbines in the 4.8 MW operational mode. After commissioning at the end of 2023, “Krivaca” will generate 310 GWh of clean electricity per year. This equates to approx. 1 percent of Serbia’s electricity consumption.
