Nordex scores nine in Finland
ABO Wind places order for N131/3000 3MW wind turbines
Nordex has received an order from developer ABO Wind to supply nine 3MW turbines in Finland.
The manufacturer will install N131/3000 machines with a rotor diameter of 131 metres at a wind farm near Jämijärvi in western Finland, it said. The facility is expected to open next autumn.
Nordex has also signed a contract to service and maintain the turbines for 15 years.
"We have been active in Finland since 2013 and number among the leading project developers there,” ABO Wind managing director Klaus Pötter said. “With our four projects already set up or under construction, we are installing 83.1MW of the approximately 2GW of wind energy with guaranteed feed-in remuneration.
“Three further projects totaling 80MW have been approved and have a secure grid connection,” he said. “In addition, five projects with 150MW are under development and we hope to be able to implement these within the framework of coming tenders."
