Nordex to build N100 wind farm for GDF Suez

30 large-scale turbines planned for the French “Germinon” project

Hamburg, 16 October 2008. Nordex France has received a new major order: The wind turbine manufacturer has entered into a contract with energy group GDF Suez for the delivery and installation of 30 Nordex N100/2500 turbines. The project is to be handled via the GDF Suez subsidiary Nass & Wind Technologie and will be supplemented by a premium service contract.


The N100 turbines are to be supplied in 2010 and will primarily be used in the “Germinon” project located in the department of Marne in the north-east of France. The site is close to the wind farm of “Cernon”, which is operated with eleven Nordex N90/2500 turbines and was built for Nass & Wind Technologie before its acquisition by GDF Suez. Wind speeds at the site average 7.4 m/s, meaning that the use of the mainland N100 turbine will ensure optimum yields. With an installed total capacity of up to 75 MW, “Germinon” will have the potential to produce more than 200.000 MWh a year.


“We have gained in GDF Suez a further important international customer. This marks the commencement of closer joint activities,” says Nordex’s COO Sales and Marketing Carsten Pedersen. With 334 MW in operation and construction permits for a further 500 MW GDF Suez is already one of the largest wind farm operators in France. In Europe as well it is a leading energy provider. GDF Suez plans to generate 20 percent of its European-wide electricity production from renewable energies in the future, with wind power to play the leading role.
