December 18 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine maker Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) has received a 83-MW follow-up order in Argentina from a subsidiary of US-based power producer AES Corporation (NYSE:AES).
Nordex said in a statement on Tuesday that AES Generacion SA has placed an order for 24 turbines of the AW132/3465 model. These machines will be produced locally and installed as part of the Vientos Neuquinos wind farm in the province of Neuquen, southwestern Argentina.
The customer has also contracted Nordex to service the turbines for a minimum period of two years.
In early September, Nordex said that AES Argentina Generacion had purchased turbines for the 99-MW Energetica wind project in the province of Buenos Aires near Bahia Blanca. These machines are to be produced locally as well.
