German wind turbine maker Nordex (ETR:NDX1) today announced a contract to equip a wind farm in the US with 269 MW of its Delta4000 machines.
Under the deal from an unnamed customer, Nordex will deliver 56 units of the N149/4.0-4.5 machines, which will be operated in a 4.8-MW mode. The turbines will be supplied in the so-called “Cold Climate” version, which provides an extended operating range and enables them to work at temperatures as low as minus 30 degrees Celsius.
Installation of the equipment is planned to begin in the summer of 2020 at a site in the North of the US. The exact location of the project and further details about it were not provided.
The contract also includes a two-year service agreement, Nordex said.
Nordex introduced the N149/4.0-4.5 model in September 2017. Last month, it unveiled an order for around 180 MW of the N149/4.0-4.5 Delta4000 series turbines. The 38 machines, with an operating range of 4.8 MW, will be powering a wind farm in Texas.
