The Nordex Group has again received orders from France. The French subsidiary from RWE, RWE Renouvelables France, has ordered ten N117 turbines for two wind farms with a total capacity of 33 MW. Both projects in the north of France are part of the sale of Nordex Group’s European wind and solar project development business to RWE in November 2020.
The Nordex Group is supplying six N117/3000 turbines on tubular steel towers with hub heights of 76 meters for the 18 MW onshore wind farm “Les Hauts Bouleaux” in the Oise Department. The 15 MW “Martinpuich” wind farm in the Pas-de-Calais department will be equipped with four N117/3600 turbines with a hub height of 91 meters, which are delivered in the operation mode of 3.675 MW. Installation of the turbines will start in the current year and the commissioning of the turbines in both wind farms is scheduled for early 2022.
The orders also include a premium service contract of the turbines. Due to the location of the wind farms, the Nordex Group benefits from the already strong network of service points in the north of France.
