BayWa r.e. awards Nordex an order for 141 MW of wind power in Spain

Nordex has secured an order from BayWa r.e. to supply and install 24 N163/5.X wind turbines of the Delta4000 series in Spain. The order also includes a 25-year Premium Service contract for the maintenance of the wind turbines.

The Cluster Rueda Sur wind farm will be installed near Zaragoza, in the autonomous community of Aragón, in northern Spain. The wind farm is being developed by BayWa r.e. together with the Spanish company CEAR. The Nordex Group will install the turbines with an installed capacity of 5.9 MW on steel tube towers with a hub height of 125 meters starting in summer 2024. Commissioning is planned for spring 2025.

Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group: “”We want to thank BayWa r.e. for their trust in our technology and that, after recently winning projects in Scotland and France, we can now continue advancing the energy transition in Spain with BayWa r.e. also.”

Francisco Cejudo, Nordex Sales Director for Spain, adds: “To date, the Nordex Group has sold turbines with a capacity of more than 3.8 GW in the Spanish market. Of them, 3.18 GW are in operation and the rest under construction. With a share of 45 percent, last year we led the sales market in Spain. In this context, the order placed by BayWa r.e. Now it encourages us even more.”

Steve Packwood, Regional Director of Wind Projects EMEA at BayWa r.e.: “We are excited to carry out this important project together with our long-term partner Nordex in one of the key markets for the energy transition in Europe. “Large-scale wind farms like Rueda Sur play an essential role in achieving vital climate goals and are important drivers when it comes to strengthening rural development, sustainable transformation and job creation in the country.”
