The Nordex Group has received another order for its
new Delta4000 turbines, with their 5MW+ rated power, in Norway. The
manufacturer will supply nine N149/5.X turbines for the “Lutelandet” wind
farm. The project was developed by Vestavind Kraft and is owned by Lutelandet
Energipark AS, a daughter of the Norwegian municipal utility, SFE Produksjon
AS; with its main business area in power generation. The order also includes a
Premium Service contract with a production-based availability warranty. The
term of the Service contract is five years, with the option to extend the
agreement on the same terms and conditions for up to four additional periods
of five years.
The 51 MW wind farm will be built on the Island of Lutelandet, approximately
100 km north of the city of Bergen, in South-west Norway. With a hub height of
105 meters, the turbines will take advantage of the local steady medium wind
speeds, which hail from the west coast and tend to average around 7.4 m/s.
Installation of the first turbines is scheduled for mid-2021, and after
completion at the end of that year, Lutelandet will generate 150 GWh clean
electricity per year.
“We are pleased to have SFE Produksjon AS as a new customer. This highlights
the fact that the Nordex Group once again is the first choice among many
energy suppliers and municipal utilities,” says Patxi Landa CSO of the Nordex
