Largest single order for the Nordex N117/2400 from Germany

18 multi-megawatt turbines ordered by STEAG New Energies for a 43.2 MW wind farm

Hamburg, 27 September 2013. The Nordex Group has been awarded its largest ever contract for a German wind farm with N117/2400 turbines by its new customer STEAG New Energies GmbH. Located in a forest location in the German state of Brandenburg, the “Ullersdorf” project will comprise 18 N117/2400 turbines. In addition to supplying and installing the wind power systems, Nordex will also be constructing the foundations. In order to boost the efficiency of the project, STEAG New Energies has opted for towers with a height of 141 metres, which require a technically complex base.

 

With the combination of the N117/2400 low-wind turbine and 141-metre towers, the wind farm will produce a calculated annual yield of 115,900 MWh. The wind farm is able to supply up to around 29,000 four-person households with clean electricity, thus preventing around 87,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions per year.

 

Work on the foundations will be commencing in early 2014, with the wind farm scheduled to go into operation in October.

 

“This contract shows once more that our turbines make low-wind sites economically viable. In addition, we have in STEAG New Energies a partner by our side which has set itself clear growth targets for renewable energies,” says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.

 

Looking forward, the STEAG Group wants to widen the proportion of renewable energies in its power production portfolio to 25 percent. Says Dr. Stephan Nahrath, management spokesman for STEAG New Energies GmbH: “This wind farm will help us to achieve the STEAG Group’s strategic goal.”
