Nordex Group to deliver wind turbines for 380MW project in Finland

The company plans to begin wind turbine deliveries in the second quarter of 2023.

Nordex has secured a contract from Finnish utility company Fortum to deliver wind turbines for the 380MW Pjelax-Boele-Kristinestad Norr wind farm cluster in south-western Finland.

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 supply, install and commission 56 Delta4000 turbines of the latest turbine type N163/6.X of the 6MW class. Additionally, Nordex has signed a premium long-term service agreement.

The project includes Pjelax-Bole and Kristinestad Norr wind farms located in the municipalities of Närpes and Kristinestad. It is being developed by Fortum , Uniper and Finnish energy company Helen .

Nordex will start delivering the wind turbines in the project-specific operating mode of 6.8MW in the second quarter of 2023.

It is the first order that the Nordex Group received from Fortum . The order also marks the 6.X turbine variant’s debut in the Nordic region.

Nordex Group CSO Patxi Landa said: “We are extremely pleased to secure our first order with Fortum and even more pleased that our customer has chosen our latest generation of turbines in the 6MW class.

“The order for the first N163/6.X turbines for the Nordics reflects Fortum ’s high level of confidence in our Delta4000 technology.

“With 380 MW, the Pjelax-Böle-Kristinestad Norr project also represents the largest order received to date in the Finnish market and serves to maintain our strong market share in one of the wind industry’s fast-growing markets.”

Nordex Group has implemented more than 37GW of wind energy capacity across 40 markets.

Last January, the company was contracted by WPD to supply wind turbines for the 188MW ‘Karhunnevankangas’ project in Finland.
