German wind turbine maker Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) on Wednesday said it has received an order from Finnish investment company Exilion Tuuli Ky to provide 100 MW of turbines for two wind farms in northern Finland.
Under the contract, secured at the end of September, Nordex will supply and install 17 units of its N163/5.X turbine at the Isokangas and Palokangas wind farms in the municipality of Ii. The turbines, which will be a cold-climate version, will be delivered and installed in the spring of 2024.
The deals include a 30-year premium service for the turbines.
Exilion is described as Finland’s largest wind power producer, operating 13 wind farms.
Nordex chief sales officer Patxi Landa said the manufacturer has so far received 5.5 GW of orders globally for its N163/5.X turbine. “In Finland alone with the N163/5.X we are now installing turbines at wind farms with more than 1.35 GW of installed capacity. These new orders once again show how suitable our technology is also for the climatic conditions in the Nordic countries,” added Landa.
