October 5 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine maker Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) today announced a contract from Turkey’s Eksim Holding to deliver turbines for a 67.2-MW wind project in Ukraine.
The Istanbul-based commercial and industrial equipment supplier has ordered 14 units of the N149/4.X machines for the Skole wind farm, its first one in Ukraine. The turbines will be supplied in a cold-climate version to fit the local weather conditions.
The Skole wind park will be located near the city with the same name in West Ukraine. Turbine installation at the site is slated to begin in March 2022, while the power plant will start feeding electricity into the national power grid at full capacity in the third quarter of 2022.
All wind farms in Eksim Holding’s fleet of 451 MW are equipped with Nordex turbines, the German manufacturer noted. The Turkish firm’s latest order includes a 15-year premium service contract.
So far, Nordex has equipped 322 MW of wind parks in Ukraine, which are grid-connected.
