German manufacturer Nordex Group is to supply compatriot company Energiekontor with turbines with a combined capacity of over 300MW.

The “latest generation” turbines will be for several projects in Germany, with the first scheduled to be commissioned next year, Energiekontor said.

Nordex Group Germany head Jorg Hempel said: “What convinced us was Energiekontor's track record and the company’s reliable realisation of projects in recent years.

“We have created what I perceive as a win-win situation here, which allows us to implement, together with a strong project development partner, a series of planned projects in the next few years.”

Energiekontor chief executive Peter Szabo said: “We would like to thank Mr Hempel and his colleagues for their confidence in us, as they expect that the projects initiated together will be able to come out successfully in the auctions to be held in the coming years.

“We are delighted to have Nordex, a renowned manufacturer of top-quality turbines, at our side along this journey.

“As part of our efficiency enhancement measures, the agreed package gives us a predictable basis for the profitable implementation of wind farms in the coming years.”
