Nordex strengthens its position in Ireland
Nordex turbines of more than 500 MW operating in the Republic of Ireland
Hamburg, 6 March 2017. The Nordex Group has passed a new milestone in the Republic of Ireland: with the commissioning of Energia Renewables’ 95 megawatt (MW) « Meenadreen » wind farm in Donegal the manufacturer passed the 500 MW mark for turbines in operation. In total, Nordex turbines with a capacity of 529 MW are now producing green power for the Irish Republic, corresponding to a market share of almost 20 percent.
In addition, in 2016 the Nordex Group improved its position in this country; with 184 MW in order intake the manufacturer approximately doubled the figure for 2015.
An example for the good development is the order for the « Slievecallan West » project received at the end of 2016. The manufacturer will be supplying 18 N90/2500 turbines for this wind farm for the Irish wind farm developer JV, Invis Energy. The turbines are to be installed on 80-metre tubular steel towers in County Clare on Ireland’s west coast. Invis Energy has also contracted the Nordex Group to service the turbines on the basis of a Premium Service contract for a period of 15 years.
« Slievecallan West » is Nordex Group’s third project with Invis Energy following the (now operational) « Knockduff » (65 MW) and « Killaveenoge » (25 MW), which is currently being commissioned.
