The Nordex Group has received an order for the delivery of 13 N133/4.8 turbines in the United Kingdom.
The order also includes a 15-year premium service contract for turbines linked to production-based availability.
The 62 MW wind farm will be installed in the former coal mining area of South Lanarkshire, Scotland. The site is distinguished by a good wind speed of 8.6 meters per second, ideal for the turbine variant for the strong wind locations of the Delta4000 generation turbines. Installation of the turbines will begin in the autumn of 2021.
“We are pleased to equip another subsidy-free wind farm in the UK with our strong-wind turbine technology. Thanks to the high installed capacity of the 4.8 MW turbine, hub heights of 110 meters, and with the consistent high annual mean wind speed at the site, the customer will be able to operate the wind farm without the need for government funding. Thanks to the wind farm, the local economy in the former coal mining community will turn away from fossil fuels and the transition to a low-carbon economy will begin.”Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
The project and customer are undisclosed.
