German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group has received a 369MW wind turbine supply order from power distribution firm Celsia for three wind projects in Colombia.

Under the contract, Nordex will deliver 63 wind turbines to be installed across the Acacia II, Camelias and Carreto wind farms.

Acacia II and Camelias are being developed in Colombia’s Guajira region, while the Carreto wind project is in Atlantico.

All three projects are located in the north of Colombia.

The Carreto wind farm will be equipped with two N155/4.8 turbines, while Acacia II and Camelias will feature 16 and 45 N155/5.X wind turbines respectively.

The order also includes a five-year premium service contract with the option to extend by five years.

Nordex Group chief sales officer Patxi Landa said: “In the last years, Colombia has been developing to a new key country in Latin America for the Nordex Group.

“We will now work closely with Celsia to help them to achieve their goals at their first wind energy project in Colombia.”

Nordex plans to produce the wind turbines locally.

The turbines will be deployed on concrete towers with a hub height of 120m. Installation works are set to begin early next year.

Once completed, Nordex will have 594MW of installed capacity in Colombia.

Nordex Group Latin America region vice-president Marcos Cardaci said: “We thank Celsia for the trust placed in Nordex and our technology and we trust in the great future of the Colombian market.”

Earlier this month, Nordex Group secured a 105MW wind turbine supply order for the Krivaca wind farm in Serbia.

The company will deliver 22 of its N149 turbines in 4.8MW operating mode for the project early next year.

The Krivaca wind farm will have the capacity to generate 310GWh of clean energy a year, which is equivalent to nearly 1% of Serbia’s total power consumption.
