January 10 (Renewables Now) - The 286-MW Andberg wind park in Sweden, developed by private investment house Ardian and Swedish renewables developer OX2, will be the first to use Nordex's 5-MW turbines, the German wind turbine manufacturer said on Friday.
The developers of the wind park, under construction in the province of Harjedalen, near Lillhardal in western Sweden, first ordered 53 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines of the 4-MW class, but in December the companies inked a new contract for the 5-MW class turbines.
Nordex introduced the new N149/5.X turbine last March. Technologically, it is based on the N149/4.0-4.5 turbine type from the Delta4000 series and can be flexibly operated in different modes, Nordex chief sales officer Patxi Landa said.
Once completed, which is expected to happen in 2021, the Andberg wind farm will produce over 800 GWh of power a year. Ardian bought the wind project from OX2 in February 2019 and signed an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with the developer.
