German wind turbine maker Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) today said it was contracted to supply 47.5 MW of its wind turbines to a project in Northern Ireland.
The German company will be installing 19 of its N90/2500 turbines at the "Brockaghboy" wind farm in Londonderry country in the spring of 2017.
Once operational, Nordex will maintain the wind farm under a 10-year premium or full-service contract using its service point in Omagh.
The Brockaghboy project, developed by TCI Renewables, is owned by the Italian power plant operator ERG Renew, a major European player with an installed capacity of 1.7 GW in seven countries.
ERG Renew has been operating N90/2500s in Italy for years, Nordex said, adding that the Italians plan to use this turbine model in Ireland, installing it on an 80-metre tubular steel tower at this very high-yield site with average wind speeds in excess of 9 m/s.
