German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group has entered the Serbian market by securing a 105MW turbine supply order for the Krivaca wind farm.

The Krivaca wind project is located in the Golubac, Kucevo and Veliko Gradiste municipalities in eastern Serbia.

It will have the capacity to generate 310GWh of clean energy a year, which is equivalent to nearly 1% of the country’s total power consumption. 

Under the contract, Nordex will deliver 22 of its N149 turbines in the 4.8MW operating mode early next year.

The company will also service the wind turbines for a period of 25 years under a premium service contract.

Nordex Group chief sales officer Patxi Landa said: “We are pleased to take this first step into the very promising Serbian market with the Krivaca project.

“We are highly motivated in starting our collaboration with the Serbian MK Group and the Slovenian ALFI Green and look forward to supporting them in their sustainable electricity production with our technology.” 

The Krivaca wind farm will be the first in eastern Serbia and is being built by Ivicom, an Austrian wind farm developer.

The wind project is expected to be commissioned by the end of next year.

Once completed, it will be operated by the Serbia-based MK Group and the Slovenian ALFI Green Energy Fund.

MK Group CEO Mihailo Jankovic said: “As a leader in green energy production in the Adriatic region, we are further expanding in this field.

“Solo and in joint ventures, we are developing wind power projects with a total capacity of 800MW and solar power projects of 660MW, which means investing €1bn in the next five years.”

Earlier this year, Nordex Group received a 131MW wind turbine supply contract from Spanish renewable project developer Acciona Energía in Peru.

The company will supply 23 N163/5.X wind turbines from the Delta4000 series for the San Juan de Marcona wind farm.
