Nordex has agreed to deliver 12 units of Nordex N100/2500 wind turbine on 80m towers will be located about 60 miles northwest of Abilene, Texas.

WKN USA is engaged in developing and constructing high quality wind farms.

In August 2011, BayWa through its subsidiary BayWa, acquired a majority stake in WKN USA.

Nordex will begin delivery of the turbines in late August 2012 and will be responsible for their installation and commissioning.

Commercial operation is scheduled for mid-December and an Extended Service contract with a two-year term has been agreed.

The turbines will generate enough energy to power about 9,000 homes.

WKN USA founder and CEO Florian Zerhusen said the company has valued the quality of Nordex’ turbines, engineering expertise and creative solutions.

"We see this order as a first step in extending the success of both of our companies in the American market," Zerhusen said.
