The Nordex Group announced that it has secured orders worth more than 84MW, further strengthening its position in France.
Under the contracts, Nordex will deliver 27 turbines for different customers at four wind farms.
The company has received an order to set up the Pays d’Anglure wind farm with six N131/3600 turbines for its long-standing customer EDF Renewables. The wind farm is the third wind farm to be built by EDF Renewables in collaboration with Nordex.
Eurowatt has ordered five N131/3600 turbines for the Parc du Rio windfarm, along with one N100/3300 turbine.
The French wind farm developer JP Energie Environnement has ordered for installing two N131/3000 turbines and four N131/3600 turbines for the Brinay wind farm.
The Brinay wind farm is located in the Département Cher in the centre of the country.
Nordex said: “One condition for being awarded this order was strict adherence to the maximum sound levels at this noise-critical site.”
Valorem has ordered nine N117/2400 machines for the Reuilly Diou wind farm. The contract marks the second order placed by Valorem this year for Nordex turbines.
The company says all these projects it has received included a service agreement covering several years.
Nordex CSO Patxi Landa said: “We are pleased to note that we continue to do well in France. Furthermore, the orders show that we are able to adapt our products well to the demanding requirements set by the local authorities – such as compliance with maximum noise levels.”
The company claims that it has installed more than 23GW of wind energy capacity in over 25 markets. It generated revenues worth €3.1bn in 2017.
In November 2018, Nordex has secured an order to supply 16 wind turbines for 57.6MW Hoort wind farm cluster in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Germany.
The Hoort wind farm is a joint project developed by wind farm developer LOSCON, and mea Energiekontor Vorpommern, a wholly owned subsidiary of the municipal utility WEMAG.
The order also included premium service contracts, each with a period of 15 years and an option to extend by a further five years.
