UKA, one of the Top 3 wind farm developers in Germany, and the Nordex Group, one of the world’s largest wind turbine manufacturers, are continuing their successful collaboration by extending their framework agreement for a further two years. This partnership currently covers a total of 80 wind turbine generators, representing a capacity of around 500 megawatts.
“In today’s difficult setting we particularly appreciate the spirit of partnership displayed by Nordex, which unfortunately can no longer be taken for granted. Due to the very good collaboration with Nordex we have decided to expand this partnership. We are looking forward to implementing a large number of projects with Nordex in the coming years,” says Gernot Gauglitz, managing partner of UKA. Karsten Brüggemann, Vice President Region Central of the Nordex Group, is also looking forward to continuing the partnership. He says: “Over the past few years UKA has established itself among the top German developers of wind farms. This collaboration also enables us to strengthen our position as one of the leading turbine suppliers in our domestic German market.” The Nordex Group will manufacture the turbine nacelles at its production facility in Rostock.
The first orders for a volume of 100 megawatts have already been initiated under the new framework agreement and are due to start operation in 2023.
