Oct 16, 2014 - German firm Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) said today it has won orders from Germany’s Fronteris Group to build and supply equipment for two wind parks in southeastern Germany.
Under the two contracts, Nordex will construct the 19.2-MW Hohenzellig and 9.6-MW Bucheck wind farms in the state of Bavaria. It will deliver for the projects total of 12 units of its N117/2400 turbines that will be installed on 141-metre (463-foot) hybrid towers. The machines are expected to achieve an above-average capacity factor of up to 34%.
Nordex will also service the turbines for 15 years.
The two wind schemes were developed by Fronteris’ unit Primus Energie GmbH and are scheduled for completion at end-2015. Once operational, the plants are anticipated to generate enough electricity to meet the demand of at least 20,000 homes.
At the end of September, Nordex said it will build and supply equipment for a 51-MW wind farm in Finland, developed by UK-based Impax Asset Management Group (LON:IPX).
