Nordex to build Polish wind farm “Orla”
Contract awarded for first construction phase / 37.5 MW wind farm to go into operation in 2015

Hamburg, 12 August 2014. Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex has been awarded a contract for the delivery and installation of nine turbines from its N100/2500 series. This constitutes the first construction phase of the 37.5 MW “Orla” wind farm, which will comprise a total of 15 N100/2500 wind turbines as cold climate version. The turbines which have now been ordered are to go into operation as early as in December 2014, with the other six to follow by mid next year.

The Orla project was initiated in 2008 and developed since by the project development arm of Nordex. “This is going to be the first realization from our pipeline of own developed projects in Poland. It is a good illustration of how Nordex can provide more value to the market with quality projects”, says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, a member of Nordex SE’s Management Board.

The client is the project company “C&C Wind” owned by international private-equity investors and an independent power producer. The project finance has largely been provided by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD).

Located in the eastern part of Poland, the wind farm is to generate an annual energy yield of up to 100 gigawatt/hours, resulting in a capacity factor of an above-average 33 percent. At the same time, it will avoid emissions of around 57,000 tons of carbon dioxide which would otherwise arise from thermal power stations. Under the targets set by the European Union, Poland has undertaken to roughly double the proportion of renewable energies in its national energy balance to 20 percent by 2021.

To date, over 2,600 of these turbines have been produced. With Generation Delta, Nordex is now offering the fourth generation of its proven multi-megawatt platform (N100/3300, N117/3000, N131/3000). Nordex has installed a total of over 6,000 turbines with an aggregate capacity of around 10,000 MW all around the world.
