Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex has secured a second contract from Midtfjellet Vindkraft for the delivery and installation of wind turbines for the phase 2 extension of the Midtfjellet wind.

The combined 110MW Midtfjellet wind farm is being built on the Norwegian island of Stord.

Nordex is also supplying 21 units of N90 2.5MW turbines for the first phase of Midtfjellet wind farm, which is being carried out by Norwegian Midtfjellet Vindkraft (MVAS), owned by Østfold Energi, EB Kraftproduksjon, Fitjar Kraftlag and Vardar.

In the second phase, Nordex will supply a mix of turbines, comprising 13 x N90/2.5MW and 10 x N100/2.5MW; installation of the turbines will begin in March 2013.

Both agreements include five-year premium service contracts with option for a further ten years.

Nordex SE chief customer officer Lars Bondo Krogsgaard said that the receiving the contract for combined Midtfjellet wind farm is an important milestone for the company and is a strong sign of faith in the Nordex product and organization.

"We have worked intimately and diligently with MVAS and are well on the track of ensuring the successful execution of the project. Midtfjellet will become the key reference project for our future Norwegian activities," said Krogsgaard.
