Nordex secures wind turbine contract from Celsia in Colombia

Wind Power Market seeing increased risk and disruption

The wind power market has grown at a CAGR of 14% between 2010 and 2021 to reach 830 GW by end of 2021. This has largely been possible due to favourable government policies that have provided incentives to the sector. This has led to an increase in the share of wind in the capacity mix, going from a miniscule 4% in 2010 to 10% in 2021. This is further set to rise to 15% by 2030. However, the recent commodity price increase has hit the sector hard, increasing risks for wind turbine manufacturers and project developers, and the Russia-Ukraine crisis has caused further price increase and supply chain disruption. In light of this, GlobalData has identified which countries are expected to add the majority of wind power capacity out to 2030.

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.
