July 7 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine maker Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) said today it has received a firm order to supply turbines for Acciona Energia’s 923-MW MacIntyre wind project in Queensland, Australia.
The wind park will be the first and major part of the larger MacIntyre complex with a total capacity of 1,026-MW, which will also encompass the 102.6-MW Karara wind development. Last month, Nordex announced it is poised to get a contract to equip both power plants.
Australia of Acciona Energia, a subsidiary of Spanish renewable energy and infrastructure group Acciona SA (BME:ANA), has ordered 162 Nordex N163/5.X turbines of the Delta4000 series. The machines will be delivered in a 5.7 MW operating mode and installed on tubular steel towers with a hub height of 148 metres (485.6 feet).
The Queensland government earlier this year gave the green light for the construction of the 1,026-MW wind scheme in its Southern Downs region. The complex is scheduled to be up and running by 2024.
