Renewable Power Capital orders 80 wind turbines for four wind farms.
At the end of 2023, the Nordex Group received orders for four wind farms in Sweden for a total of 553 MW from the renewable energy investment company, Renewable Power Capital, which operates throughout Europe. Orders also include a Premium Plus Service for the wind turbines with a duration of 35 years.
In spring 2025, the Nordex Group will begin to deliver and install 80 wind turbines, of which 74 are N163/6.X and six N149/5.X wind turbines, for the “High Coast” group of wind farms. “High Coast” comprises four wind farms: Knäsjöberget (98 MW), Sörlidberget (140 MW), Vitberget (161 MW) and Storhöjden (154 MW), all of them built in the province of Västerorrlands Län.
The Delta4000 series wind turbines will be installed on steel tube towers with a hub height of 105, 118, 138 and 148 meters, depending on height limitations. The Nordex Group will provide all wind turbines in the cold climate version and will equip the 74 N163/6.X wind turbines with the Nordex advanced icing system to reduce icing on the rotor blades and continue producing power even under formation of ice.
Kevin Devlin, CEO of Renewable Power Capital, says: “We are really impressed by the performance and reliability of the Nordex wind turbines. The approach of the Nordex team, supported by strong environmental objectives and circularity, is key for us. “As an investor driving the European energy transition, we are pleased to have such a significant turbine contract delivering on some of the most exciting wind farm projects across Europe.”
“We are proud to participate in this important wind cluster with our turbines and to be able to demonstrate once again the effectiveness of our anti-icing technology in such a demanding climate environment,” says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group. “High Coast will expand our experience with large-scale projects in Sweden and help us consolidate our position as a leading supplier of wind turbines in Scandinavia. “We are very pleased to be working with Renewable Power Capital for the first time.”
The turbines at all four wind farms will come online in 2025. Nordex will work closely with local authorities and municipalities to ensure that each project is implemented in accordance with local regulations and requirements.
