German wind turbine maker Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) said on Tuesday it had received an order to supply its machines for an up to 137-MW wind farm project in Poland.
A subsidiary of Lithuanian energy company Ignitis Grupe AB (VSE:IGN1L) placed the order, securing 37 units of the N117/3600 turbines for the Silesia 2 wind project. The contract includes an option for Nordex to supply an additional turbine, the manufacturer said.
The order also comes with a Premium Service contract for the turbines covering fifteen years, with an option to extend the period by additional five years.
Silesia 2 will be located near to the city of Opole in the south-west part of Poland, and close to the 50-MW Silesia 1 wind farm, which is now under construction. Both projects are owned by the same Ignitis’ subsidiary, Ignitis Renewables.
Ignitis Renewables recently signed an agreement to acquire an unnamed owner of the Silesia 2 development.
Nordex expects to start deliveries and installation works on the Silesia 2 site in the summer of 2023. The turbines will be mounted on 134-metre tubular steel towers, the German group said.
