Nordex SE has won a contract from Taaleritehdas, Finland-based investment company, to supply and service 19 units of 2.4MW wind turbines for the Myllykangas wind farm in north-western Finland.


Under the contract, Nordex will supply N117/2400 turbines with a hub height of 120m for the 45.6MW Myllykangas project located in the Li region.

Delivery of the turbines is scheduled to start in 2014 and commissioning is planned for 2015.

This contract is part of a framework agreement signed in 2012 under which Nordex will deliver up to 111 wind turbines.

The Myllykangas wind farm will form a single cluster together with the Nyby-Li wind park where Nordex is presently installing eight wind turbines, the company said.

Nordex management board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard said, "We are pleased to see that our business in Finland continues to develop well and that Taaleritehdas chooses Nordex again."

Taaleritehdas wind energy operations director Taamir Fareed said, "We are very pleased to continue our good co-operation with Nordex now in Myllykangas. We have very good experience of Nordex N117 turbines from our Honkajoki site and therefore feel confident in continuing to install Nordex turbines in our next development site in Myllykangas, Ii."
