Nordex receives WPD orders for 109 MW of wind power in Sweden and Finland

Nordex has received two orders for a total of 109.3 MW in WPD Sweden and Finland. The Nordex Group is providing ten wind turbines N163/6.x for the Tomasliden wind farm in Sweden. For the Finnish project “Olainen”, WPD made an order with the Nordex group for the delivery of seven N163/5.x wind turbines. Both orders also include a premium service contract for the maintenance of turbines for 15 years with an extension option for another five years.

The 68 MW “Tomasliden” wind farm, a wind project that includes N163/6.x turbines for the first time in Sweden, is being built in Vesterbotten County, about 55 km west of Skeleftea.

The 41.3 MW “Olainen” Finnish Wind Park is being built in the municipality of Olainen in the northern region of Ostrobothnia.

In both projects, the Nordex Group is providing the turbines in the cold climate variant and equipped with the Nordex advanced antiing system to avoid the formation of the rotor blaze glaze. The construction of both wind farms is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2024.
