Located in a forest location in the German state of Brandenburg, the Ullersdorf project will comprise 18 N117/2400 turbines. In addition to supplying and installing the wind power systems, Nordex will also be constructing the foundations. STEAG New Energies has opted for towers with a height of 141 m, which require a more complex base.
The wind farm will produce a calculated annual yield of 115,900 MWh, supplying up to around 29,000 four-person households.
Work on the foundations will be commencing in early 2014, with the wind farm scheduled to go into operation in October.
“This contract shows once more that our turbines make low-wind sites economically viable,” claimed Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, a member of the management moard at Nordex. “In addition, we have in STEAG New Energies a partner by our side which has set itself clear growth targets for renewable energies.”
The STEAG Group wants to widen the proportion of renewable energies in its power production portfolio to 25 per cent. “This wind farm will help us to achieve the STEAG Group’s strategic goal,” said Dr Stephan Nahrath, management spokesman for STEAG New Energies.
