Nordex to build two wind farms in South Germany
Hamburg, 16 October 2014. Nordex is building further on its success with the N117/2400 in South Germany. The turbine manufacturer has now received two orders at the same time from its new customer, the Fronteris Group from Regensburg. The sites for the two projects, « Hohenzellig » and « Bucheck, are located near Hof in Bavaria, where the turbines will achieve an above-average capacity factor of up to 34 percent. This high energy yield is possible because the N117/2400 is ideally suited to the regional wind conditions and Fronteris decided to have 141-metre hybrid towers installed for the project.
« We look forward to working together with Nordex and the use of modern, efficient turbine technology especially designed for inland sites, » says Andreas Böhm, Managing Director at Fronteris. The project was developed by Primus Energie GmbH, a subsidiary of the Fronteris Group. The two projects are due to be completed at the end of 2015.
Both contracts included a Premium Service Agreement with a term of 15 years. Nordex will be establishing a service station at the site in time for grid connection of the wind farms in order to guarantee timely technical maintenance on a realistic basis. « For the investors in the Lacuna Hohenzellig wind farm and the Lacuna Bucheck wind farm the establishment of the local service station provides additional security, » says a pleased Thomas Hartauer, Management Board member of the Lacuna investment company, which also belongs to the Fronteris Group.
Together the two wind farms will supply at least 20,000 households with « green » electricity, making a valuable contribution to the regional energy balance.
