Th Nordex Group has secured a follow-up order for eleven N117/3600 turbines from Midtfjellet Vindkraft AS, a long-standing Norwegian customer, a press release said Monday. The turbines are for the Midtfjellet III wind farm on Stord island, southwest Norway. Delivery and installation of the turbines is scheduled for spring 2018. The project is owned by a joint venture comprising the Hamburg-based Aquila Capital and the local energy suppliers and power plant operators Fitjar Kraftlag SA, Østfold Energi Vind AS and Vardar Boreas AS. The customer also signed a Premium Service Agreement for a period of five years with the option to prolong it twice for five years.
“Together Midtfjellet I and II are the largest wind farms in Norway, with very high production figures. The site is extremely demanding due to the perfect wind conditions. The fact that Midtfjellet Vindkraft AS has now engaged us for the second extension at this site is a clear indication of the confidence placed in our team and our turbines,” says Patxi Landa, Chief Sales Officer of Nordex SE.
