Nordex strengthens its position in Ireland
Nordex turbines of more than 500 MW operating in the Republic of Ireland
Hamburg, 6 March 2017. The Nordex Group has passed a new milestone in the Republic of Ireland: with the commissioning of Energia Renewables’ 95 megawatt (MW) «Meenadreen» wind farm in Donegal the manufacturer passed the 500 MW mark for turbines in operation. In total, Nordex turbines with a capacity of 529 MW are now producing green power for the Irish Republic, corresponding to a market share of almost 20 percent.
In addition, in 2016 the Nordex Group improved its position in this country; with 184 MW in order intake the manufacturer approximately doubled the figure for 2015.
An example for the good development is the order for the «Slievecallan West» project received at the end of 2016. The manufacturer will be supplying 18 N90/2500 turbines for this wind farm for the Irish wind farm developer JV, Invis Energy. The turbines are to be installed on 80-metre tubular steel towers in County Clare on Ireland’s west coast. Invis Energy has also contracted the Nordex Group to service the turbines on the basis of a Premium Service contract for a period of 15 years.
«Slievecallan West» is Nordex Group’s third project with Invis Energy following the (now operational) «Knockduff» (65 MW) and «Killaveenoge» (25 MW), which is currently being commissioned.
