wpd has placed an order with the Nordex Group for 188 MW in Finland
- Long-standing customer orders 33 N163/5.X turbines
- First turbines on tubular steel towers with a hub height of 159 metres
Hamburg, 7 January 2021. At the end of December 2020, the Nordex Group received another order for N163/5.X turbines in the Delta4000 series. wpd placed an order with the Nordex Group for 33 turbines for the 188 MW “Karhunnevankangas” project in Finland. The order also includes a Premium Service contract covering a period of 15 years and an option to extend by a further five years.
Installation and completion of the wind farm in the north of Ostrobothnia in western Finland is scheduled for 2022. The turbines will be supplied in a project-specific operating mode of 5.7 MW, resulting in a total output for the wind farm of 188 MW. For the first time the Nordex Group will be installing the turbines on tubular steel towers with a hub height of 159 metres. The height of the rotor blade tips of 240 metres means that the turbines reach higher wind strata with less turbulence at the site, which is located near the coast.
