The wind farms will be connected to the grid this year after the project finance has been finalised.
The order brings the total volume jointly executed by Nordex and ABO Wind to 51.2 MW this year.
The projects, which are developed in non-coastal regions characterised by weaker winds, will comprise of 8 N100/2500 wind turbines and 13 N117/2400 wind turbines, with rotor blades measuring almost 60 m. As part of the wind farms will be located in forests, hybrid towers with an above-average height of 141 m are being used in all projects to optimise energy yield.
“Germany is of crucial importance for Nordex as our home market is stable and continuing to grow. What is more, the fact that our long-standing customer ABO Wind has opted in favour of the new non-coastal systems marks a key success,” says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, CCO at Nordex SE.
Over the past few years, Nordex has also installed numerous wind farms for ABO Wind in France, Ireland and the UK.
“We are currently seeing growing interest in additions to wind power in the southern half of Germany in particular,” adds Dr. Jochen Ahn, a member of ABO Wind AG’s management board. “Wind turbines such as the N100 and the N117, which also achieve high yields in non-coastal locations, are helping to spur the success of the new energy policy.”
