April 1 (Renewables Now) - A week after reporting a 400-MW order in Norway for its N149/5.X model, Nordex (ETR:NDX1) announced another contract in the country for the same type of turbines, this time relating to a 51-MW project.
The German wind turbine manufacturer said today it will supply nine units of the N149/5.X for the Lutelandet wind project on the Island of Lutelandet, about 100 km north of the city of Bergen in South-west Norway. The project was developed by Vestavind Kraft and is owned by Lutelandet Energipark AS, a subsidiary of municipal utility SFE Produksjon AS.
Under the terms of the contract, Nordex will service the machines for a period of five years, with an extension option for up to four additional periods of five years. It expects to install the first turbines in mid-2021 and have the full wind park up and running by the end of that year. Upon completion, the plant will produce some 150 GWh a year.
