Nordex AG has been awarded a contract for the construction of a wind farm from East Asia. It will be building a total of nine units of the model N90/2500 in 2007 in conjunction with a local business partner. The contract for the delivery of turbines and rotor blades has a value of around EUR 14 million. The business partner of Nordex will be supplying the towers, foundations and also servicing the wind farm.

The wind farm will be generating up to 40,000 MWh of clean energy a year, sufficient to cover the electricity requirements of some 10,000 households. On account of the rough weather conditions, Nordex will be fitting the turbines out with special lightning conductors: Each rotor blade will have an aluminum tip as well as other receptors spread over the blade. A further technical feature is the fact that Nordex will be producing a 60 Hz version of the N90 turbines for the first time in view of the grid frequency required in this region. This frequency is only used in parts of Japan, Taiwan, Korea and the United States.

"This project is an important reference for markets in the East Asia, where we have so far primarily been building smaller turbines. At the same time, it marks a return to closer collaboration with our partner, with whom we have been working since 1994," explains Carsten Pederson, COO Sales and Marketing at Nordex AG. To date, around 270 Nordex turbines are in operation in the East Asia.
