Nordex awarded first contract for the N131/3000 in Finland
Hamburg, 11 February 2015. Launched last year, Nordex’s N131/3000 wind turbine is attracting growing demand outside Germany as well: Thus, Finnish asset management company Taaleritehdas has ordered the first models from this series. Accordingly, Nordex will be enlarging the « Myllykangas » wind farm with the addition of a further three turbines, namely two N131/3000 turbines and one N117/2400 turbine. The contract also includes premium service for a period of 12 years.
Installation work is to commence in the autumn following the completion of the current construction phase for 19 N117/2400 turbines. The wind farm is located in the north of Finland close to the town of Ii. In view of the prevailing cold conditions, the N131/3000 rotors will be fitted with an anti-icing system. Moreover, the turbines are designed to make the most of the local wind conditions and will achieve an above-average capacity factor of more than 40 percent.
« The low noise level of 104.5 dB and the high efficiency of the 3-MW turbine prompted us to enlarge the wind farm swiftly. Quiet turbines with large rotor offer a major advantage in Finland in particular, » says Taamir Fareed, Director of Renewable Energy Business at Taaleritehdas Private Equity Funds. Nordex has already installed or is currently installing three wind farms with a capacity of almost 90 MW for this customer.
