Nordex awarded further orders in Pakistan
Hamburg, 20 April 2015. Nordex SE has again received two orders for the turn-key installation of wind farms in Pakistan. It will be delivering a total of 40, N100/2500 turbines to the province of Sindh. In view of the high ambient temperature conditions at the site, hot climate versions of the turbines designed to operate in temperatures of up to 45 degrees Celsius will be used. Construction is to commence in the spring, with both projects to go on line in summer 2016. After completion, Nordex will be providing service for the farms for a further 10 years.
Local site preparations including work on the foundations, access roads and cabling will be handled by Nordex’ partner Descon Engineering, Lahore. Nordex has previously completed several projects in consortium with Descon already with a combined volume of 150 MW in Pakistan. As a result, the subsidiary Nordex Pakistan, Islamabad, is one of the country’s most experienced vendors.
The customers for the two new projects are the independent power producers Yunus Energy Limited and Metro Power Company Limited. «With this contract, we have opted for a strong vendor with German machinery and a solid track record of EPC in Pakistan and worldwide» says Danish Iqbal, CEO of Metro Power.
Customers in new markets in particular count on Nordex to complete projects on a turn-key basis. «We will be using the currently strong momentum in the emerging markets to expand our business here,» says Nordex Board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.
