Tail wind for Nordex in Finland
Impax orders 27-MW wind farm from Nordex
Hamburg, 19 December 2013. After a successful market entry over the last two years, demand for Nordex wind turbines is growing substantially in Finland. Nordex has signed supply and maintenance contracts for a 27-MW wind farm with specialist investor Impax Asset Management. The ‘Joukhaisselkä’ project will comprise nine N117/3000 turbines from the Delta series. Launched at the beginning of 2013, this series is specifically designed for locations with medium wind speeds.
Nordex will be installing the turbines at the ‘Joukhaisselkä’ wind farm in Lapland near the town of Sodankylä in 2014. Given the cold weather conditions, Impax has also opted to have the turbines fitted with the Nordex anti-icing system, which prevents ice from forming on the rotor blades, thus ensuring optimum energy production during the winter months. Having already implemented this solution successfully in Sweden, Nordex is now also delivering it to Finland.
‘Joukhaisselkä’ marks a premiere for Impax. It is the first wind project in which it has invested in this relatively immature market.
‘The Finnish market offers our customers attractive opportunities for investing in the production of clean electricity. We are very pleased to see that more and more investors are entering this market and relying on our extensive experience in this region,’ says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, a member of Nordex’s Management Board.
