Nordex is delivering 11 N90/2500 turbines to the Slievecallan East wind project in Ireland, which is being developed by Brookfield Renewables.

Situated on the west coast of the Republic, the project is expected to begin operations by the end of 2017.

Nordex is in charge of the foundation work at the project and it will be supplying 80m tubular steel towers.

The company will also provide 15 years of premium services.

Nordex says that the wind project which is located in County Clare uses the strong winds from the Atlantic. The name of the project comes from the nearby mount Slievecallan.

Brookfield Renewable Irish Operation General Manager George Martin said: “Brookfield Renewable is delighted to team with Nordex on Slievecallan.

"This is an important project for Brookfield and sees a continuation of the company’s investment in Ireland.”

Brookfield Renewable's portfolio includes hydroelectric and wind facilities across North America, Latin America and Europe and totals over 10,000MW of capacity.

In Ireland, the company already owns and operates over 200MW of Nordex turbines.

Nordex, on the other hand has about 20GW of wind projects installed in more than 25 markets and already has 600MW of installed capacity in Ireland.
