Nordex Group has secured a wind turbines contract from the joint venture partners Credit Suisse Energy Infrastructure Partners (CSEIP) and E.ON Climate & Renewables to supply wind turbines for the 475MW Nysäter project in Sweden.

Under the contract, Nordex Group will deliver 104 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines from its Delta4000 series and ten N131/3900 turbines, with a mixture of tower heights.

The Nysäter project, which is owned by a fund advised by CSEIP and E.ON Climate & Renewables, includes two sites – Hästkullen and Björnlandhöjden – in the Västernorrland region of Sweden.

Nordex chief sales officer Patxi Landa said: “Nysäter is a lighthouse project in several respects. We see this major order as confirmation of the highly competitiveness of our latest technology, the N149.

“The turbine passes the most extreme scrutiny and requirements of customers and financing banks in terms of bankability and technical and economic feasibility, and this in one of the most challenging markets in Europe.

“This deal also confirms our customers’ confidence in the Nordex Group and the capabilities of our team to deliver large and complex projects in a challenging environment. I am particularly pleased that we are able to further expand our business with our long-standing partners.”

Additionally, Nordex will deliver the civil and electrical balance of plant (BoP) works under an engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) contract.

E.ON Climate & Renewables Europe Onshore Wind director KatjaBartsch-Wünschel said: “It is impressive to deliver this unique project now from the development phase into construction.

“The great collaboration between the Nordex team and our team was a key success factor and enabled us to apply now the most updated technology with the N149.”

Furthermore, the wind turbine manufacturer has signed a two-year service contract for the turbines, as a contractor under E.ON’s long-term operation, management, and maintenance agreement for the wind project.

Construction of the wind project is set to commence in 2018 and is anticipated to be completed by the end of 2021.
