Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex has received an order from Vattenfall to supply and install 13 turbines for two wind projects in the Netherlands.
Vattenfall has awarded the contract to supply six N117/3675 turbines for 22MW Haringvliet project and seven N131/3900 turbines for the 27MW Moerdijk project.
Apart from installation, the contract also included a premium service for both wind farms for two-years, with the option of a subsequent extension of 23 years.
Nordex Group CSO Patxi Landa said: “Vattenfall is a strong and important partner for our activities in Europe and especially in the Netherlands. This order means that in the coming years we will be installing almost 350 MW in Holland for Vattenfall alone.”
The N117/3675 turbines for Haringvliet are to be delivered first in December 2019. Grid connection of the wind farm is scheduled for spring 2020. Once operational, the wind farm is expected to supply approximately 22,000 households with clean electricity.
The Haringvliet wind farm site is located in the province of Zuid-Holland on the island of Goeree-Overflakkee, near to the town of Middelharnis.
The Moerdijk wind farm is located in the port and industrial area of the town of Moerdijk, in the province of North Brabant.
The wind farm is expected to be installed and completed by summer 2020. Once operational, the wind farm would supply approximately 27,000 households with clean electricity.
Nordex claims that it has installed more than 23GW of wind energy capacity in over 25 markets and generated revenues of €3.1bn in 2017. The company currently has about 5,000 employees.
In September 2018, Nordex received a contract from Vattenfall to supply 3.6MW turbines for the expansion of its Wieringermeer wind farm in the Netherlands. Under this order, Nordex has supplying 32 of its N117/3600 turbines.
This order is an expansion of the Vattenfall’s previous year’s order for supply of 50 turbines from the same series. The expansion contract includes the delivery and installation of the turbines along with the services for at least two years.
The expansion of the wind farm will increase its total capacity to nearly 300MW.
