At the end of 2021, the Nordex Group received its first order in Finland from Enefit Green AS, one of the leading diversified renewable energy producers in the Baltic region.
This contract is for the supply, installation and commissioning of 13 N163/5.X wind turbines from the Delta4000 technology platform and equipped with Nordex’ Anti-Icing System. The order also includes a 30-year long-term Premium service agreement.
The 72 MW Tolpanvaara Wind Farm Complex is located in Northern Ostrobothnia, in the Pudasjärvi municipality about 700 km north of Helsinki. Installation of the turbines is planned for the summer of 2023.
“With this order we are celebrating an important landmark of over 1.5 GW of sold capacity in Finland with the Delta4000 platform alone and over 2 GW in total in the Finnish market, since we started our operations there in 2011. We are marking this achievement with yet another valued new customer in Enefit Green AS and with our perfectly-suited N163/5.X technology with cold climate options”, says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
“Enefit Green is aiming to increase its electricity generation capacity 2,3fold by 2025 and building new wind parks is a key component of this growth. Having a reliable partner like Nordex for supplying the turbines and maintaining the wind park ensures both completing the construction as well as continuity of production from Tolpanvaara wind park. We are happy to have Nordex professional team on board”, says Lauri Ulm, Head of Wind Development of Enefit Green.
