Nordex supplying 20 MW to Northern Ireland
Hamburg, May 20, 2010. The first joint project between Nordex and UK developer DW Consultancy Ltd. has been signed and sealed: DW Consultancy has ordered eight Nordex N80/2500 turbines for their Northern Irish wind farm known as “Screggagh”. Nordex will be supplying the wind turbines from its European production facility in Rostock in September.
The turbines will be built in County Tyrone. The average wind speed at the site is 8.5 m/s. Thanks to the N80/2500 strong-wind turbine, “Screggagh” will be able to supply around 10,500 households a year with clean electricity.
The wind farm marks the first project for DW Consultancy to go to construction in Northern Ireland. DW Consultancy are active wind farm developers in Northern Ireland, with four wind farm projects (totalling 50 MW) currently permitted full planning permission, and a further eight projects (totalling more than 100 MW) within the planning system. These additional projects present the prospect of possible follow-up contracts for Nordex, one of the top suppliers of turbines in the UK market.
