The Nordex Group has announced that it has won another order for turbines from Lithuania. The Group will deliver eleven N163/5.X turbines for the Jurbarkas II wind farm, which will have a capacity of 62.7 MW.

Green Genius, a Lithuanian project developer, is working on the winning project. According to Nordex Group, the deal also includes a premium Service contract for the turbines’ maintenance for a duration of 25 years. 

The wind farm will be erected near the town of Jurbarkas in an agricultural region in the country’s southwest, around 50 kilometres from the Baltic Sea, according to Nordex Group. It has average wind speeds of more than 7 m/s, making the Delta4000 series turbines, which will be installed on 159-metre towers, the ideal choice for the project.

The turbines will be delivered and installed in 2024, and Green Genius will run the eleven Nordex Group turbines with a capacity of 5.7 MW.

In the same location, the Nordex Group erected the “Jurbarkas” wind farm with eight N117/3000 turbines when it first entered the Lithuanian market in 2015. It also established a Service Point near the wind farm at the time, from which the turbines of “Jurbarkas II ” would be maintained following their commissioning.

Green Genius, a real estate developer, is part of the Lithuanian Modus Group, which operates in 11 European countries. The primary activities of the business involve four categories, one of which being Renewable Energy.
