The Nordex Group has secured a contract from BayWa r.e. for the provision and installation of 24 N163/5.X turbines from the Delta4000 series in Spain. This agreement also includes a 25-year Premium Service agreement to ensure ongoing maintenance of these turbines.
These 5.9 MW capacity turbines will find their home in the Cluster Rueda Sur wind farm, situated near Zaragoza in the autonomous region of Aragón, in northern Spain. The wind farm is a collaborative project between BayWa r.e. and the Spanish company CEAR. The Nordex Group is set to erect these turbines on tubular steel towers, boasting a hub height of 125 meters, commencing in the summer of 2024. Anticipated commissioning is slated for the spring of 2025.
Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group, said, “We would like to thank BayWa r.e.for their trust in our technology and that, after recently winning projects in Scotland and France, we can now continue to advance the energy transition in Spain with BayWa r.e. as well.”
Francisco Cejudo, Nordex Sales Director for Spain, noted, “To date, the Nordex Group has sold turbines with a capacity of more than 3.8 GW on the Spanish market. Of these, 3.18 GW are in operation, the rest are under construction. With a share of 45 percent, we led the sales market in Spain last year. Against this background, the order placed by BayWa r.e. now spurs us on all the more.”
Matthias Taft, CEO of BayWa r.e.: “We are excited to carry out this milestone project together with our long-term partner Nordex in one of the key markets for the energy transition in Europe. Large-scale wind farms like Rueda Sur play such an essential role for achieving vital climate targets and are important drivers when it comes to reinforce rural development, sustainable transformation and job creation in the country.”
