German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) said today it has extended its partnership with wind developer UKA for a further two years, targeting the deployment of about 500 MW of capacity.
The two companies signed a framework agreement that covers the installation of 80 turbine generators. The turbine nacelles will be produced at the manufacturer's factory in Rostock, Germany.
Nordex is already working on the first orders for turbines totalling 100 MW that are due to start operation in 2023.
The cooperation between the two companies dates back to the beginning of 2020 when they inked a deal that entitled UKA to call up turbines with a total volume of more than 300 MW for German projects. The turbines are supplied and installed by Nordex. The first turbines -- three N149/4.0-4.5 machines, were delivered in the summer of 2020 for the 13.5-MW wind farm Leeskow II & IV in Lower Lusatia, Brandenburg.
"Due to the very good collaboration with Nordex we have decided to expand this partnership. We are looking forward to implementing a large number of projects with Nordex in the coming years,” said UKA managing director Gernot Gauglitz.
