March 24 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine maker Nordex (ETR:NDX1) has won a 400-MW order in Norway for the Oyfjellet wind project near the town of Mosjoen in the municipality of Vefsn.

Nordex will deliver and install 72 units of its N149/5.X turbines and, upon completion of the wind farm in the autumn of 2021, will be in charge of the full maintenance of the machines under a 20-year premium service contract, which could be extended to up to 30 years.

The project in question was developed by Eolus Vind AB. In 2018, the firm entered into a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Alcoa Norway, which will buy the output of the wind park over a period of 15 years. The electricity will be used to supply its aluminium production plant in nearby Mosjoen as well as the local community.

At the end of 2019, Hamburg-based investor Aquila Capital completed the acquisition of the project company, namely Oyfjellet Wind AS, from Eolus Vind.
