Finland : Nordex awarded further major contract by Taaleritehdas.

Finnish Investment company Tleritehdas has placed another large-scale order with Nordex for a further 19 N117/2400 turbines, which are to be supplied for the Myllykangas wind farm on the northwest coast of Finland. This marks Tleritehdas third calldown under the frame contract, which was signed in 2012 for a total of up to 111 turbines. It has already acquired 17 Nordex turbines specially developed for IEC-3 wind classes for the Honkajoki and Nyby-li sites.

Myllykangas is located not far from the Nybi-li wind farm in the Ii region, where eight wind turbines are currently under construction. Accordingly, Nordex will also be providing service for the 19 turbines under the current calldown from the joint service point in Kempele. With a nominal output of 2.4 megawatts each and a hub height of 120 meters, the turbines will be supplied in the cold-climate version from autumn 2014 and are scheduled to be connected to the grid in 2015. Myllykangas will be Finland s largest wind farm and form a single cluster together with Nyby-Li.

We are pleased to see that our business in Finland continues to develop well and that Tleritehdas chooses Nordex again , says Lars Bondo Krogsgrd, member of the Nordex SE Management Board.

We are very pleased to continue our good co-operation with Nordex now in Myllykangas. We have very good experience of Nordex N117 turbines from our Honkajoki site and therefore feel confident in continuing to install Nordex turbines in our next development site in Myllykangas, Ii , says Tmir Fareed, Director of Tleritehdas Wind Energy Operations.

Together with the projects Nyby-Ii, Makikangas and Joukhaisselka Nordex will be installing more than 40 turbines with a total capacity of 125 MW in Finland.
