The Nordex Group has secured a contract for the delivery and commissioning of 49 N155/5.X turbines for the “Forty Mile” wind farm located in Alberta, Canada. This wind farm project is owned by Renewable Energy Systems Canada, Inc. Upon its anticipated completion in Q1 2025, “Forty Mile,” with a capacity of approximately 280 MW, will stand as ACCIONA Energía’s most expansive wind farm in North America.
Each turbine, designed for cold climate conditions, have a rated capacity of 5.7 MW and will be operational on sturdy 108-meter steel towers.
“We are delighted to provide the technology to help support Canada’sambitious climate change targets,” noted Patxi Landa, CSO of the NordexGroup. “With the cold climate version, our turbines ensure smooth operation even in the challenging weather conditions found in this region where temperatures can go below minus 30 degrees.”
Adopting ambitious climate change objectives, Canada has secured 8th position worldwide for installed wind capacity by the close of 2022. The Canadian Renewable Energy Association anticipates a robust surge in wind energy, projecting an incorporation of over 5GW in the near term (2023-5).
