Nordex SE has received a contract from a renewable energy developer, RES for two wind projects in UK, with a total installed capacity of 25MW.

Under the contract, Nordex will provide its N90-2500 turbines to the 15MW Jack's Lane project in Norfolk and also four N100/2500 machines for the 10MW Woolley Hill wind park in Huntingdonshire.

The turbines are scheduled to be installed and operational by the end of 2014.

Nordex management board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard said, "We are pleased to be able to execute a further two projects with our core customer RES for our proven N90 and N100 turbines."

RES UK and Ireland construction director Ted Picken said, "We look forward to working with Nordex again - a company with a track-record for delivering full optimisation of energy yield at sites throughout the UK.

"Running the Woolley Hill and Jack's Lane turbine contracts in parallel provides us with an overall cost reduction in the project management, technical engineering and contract administration that in turn encourages close cooperation between the expertise in each organisation."

"The turbines are scheduled to be installed and operational by the end of 2014."

RES and Nordex have already worked together on various projects in Northern Ireland with a combined capacity of 90MW.

The present cooperation is based on previous relationship, with usage of Nordex N90/2500 turbines at Jack's Lane project and N100/2500 model at Woolley Hill wind farm, as the products have proved to be the most cost-effective option for delivering full optimised energy yields for the projects, RES said.

Earlier in March 2014, RES has developed local electricity discount scheme for more than 350 properties in the area surrounding RES' Jack's Lane wind farm who are eligible to claim £117 off their electricity bills.
