The project, which is owned by independent power producer company Gul Ahmed Energy’s subsidiary Gul Ahmed Wind Power, is planned to be built in a semi-desert area in the south of Pakistan, near the city of Jhimpir and the Arabian Sea.

As part of contract, Nordex is entailed to deliver the "hot-climate" version of the turbines designed especially for high temperature regions.

The deal marks the company’s fifth 50MW frame contract, Nordex said.

Nordex CEO Lars Bondo Krogsgaard said: "This underlines the dependability of our partners and the confidence placed in us."

Since 2012, Nordex has installed 150MW of wind turbines in Pakistan.

The country’s power generation capacity currently stands at 22,000MW. The Alternative Energy Development Board (AEDB) estimates that the country has the capability to produce around 50,000MW from wind projects.
