German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group has secured a 100MW turbine supply contract from Finnish investor Exilion Tuuli for its Isokangas and Palokangas wind farms in Finland.

Under the contract, Nordex will supply and install 17 of its N163/5.X wind turbines at the facilities.

Located in Finland’s Ii municipality, the two wind farms will be equipped with cold-climate turbines.  

Nordex Group chief sales officer Patxi Landa said: “We are very pleased that Exilion – Finland’s largest wind power producer – has chosen us to supply our onshore technology.

“Since the introduction of the N163/5.X turbine used for both projects, to date the Nordex Group has received orders from around the world for 5.5GW for this type of turbine from the Delta4000 series.

“In Finland alone, with the N163/5.X, we are now installing turbines at wind farms with more than 1.35GW of installed capacity.

“These new orders once again show how suitable our technology is also for the climatic conditions in the Nordic countries.” 

Nordex plans to deliver and install the wind turbines in the spring of 2024.

The two orders each also include a 30-year premium service contract.

Nordex has installed more than 41GW of wind energy capacity in more than 40 markets to date.

In July this year, the company received a wind turbine supply order from a consortium of Finnish energy utility Helen and the Ålandsbanken Wind Power Fund.

As part of this, Nordex agreed to supply and install 25 of its N163/5.X turbines for the 147.5MW Karahka wind farm, which is being developed in the north of Oulainen in Finland’s North Ostrobothnia region.

Exilion is a Finnish investment company that has expertise in the real estate and renewable energy sectors.

Founded in 2005, the company manages ten properties and 13 wind farms, which have a combined capital value of €1.3bn ($1.29bn).
