DGAP-News: Nordex SE / Key word(s): Incoming Orders2015-10-01 / 08:57---------------------------------------------------------------------Hamburg, 1 October 2015. Nordex will be supplying Frodsham Wind FarmLimited in UK, owned by Peel Energy and Belltown Power, with 19 N90/2650wind turbines. This version of the N90/2500 Gamma strong-wind turbine hasbeen especially developed for the Frodsham" project.Originally designed to accommodate 21 turbines, the wind farm is located onthe Frodsham Marshes roughly 12 kilometres north-east of Chester. Thescheme was redesigned and the number of turbines reduced followingconsultation with the local community and nature conservation experts. Toensure that the planned total capacity of at least 50 megawatts could stillbe achieved, Nordex has developed an exclusive higher-output version of theN90/2500 for this project. As a result, the wind farm will have a certifiedoutput of 50.35 megawatts."With the Frodsham project, we have shown that we are flexible enough toaccommodate our customers' individual requirements. However, the N90/2650will not be going into bulk production," explains Lars Bondo Krogsgaard,CEO of Nordex. The specific conditions prevailing at the "Frodsham" sitefavoured the development of this innovative solution. "The wind in thisregion exhibits only minor turbulence and the climate is mild. This allowedour engineers to increase the turbine output," says Krogsgaard. Construction work at "Frodsham " commenced in April 2015, with the deliveryof the initial turbines scheduled for the second quarter of 2016. After itgoes into operation, the wind farm will produce some 100,000 gigawatthoursof electricity per annum, sufficient to supply around 24,000 homes. After"Scout Moor" and "Port of Liverpool", "Frodsham" is the third wind farm atwhich Peel Energy is installing Nordex turbines.About NordexAs one of the technological leaders in multi-megawatt wind power systems,Nordex is benefiting from the trend in favour of large-scale turbines.
