Wind Turbine

Under the contract, Nordex will be responsible for the delivery and installation of 11 N117/3000 Generation Delta turbines of 3MW each at the plant, which is wpd’s first project in Finland.

The turbines, which have a hub height of 141m, will generate enough electricity to power around 24,000 homes.

Nordex will provide the turbines suitable for cold-climatic conditions as the site experiences periods of extremely low temperatures of down to minus 30 degrees.

Nordex management board member Lars Krogsgaard said, "We are pleased that wpd has again opted for our turbines and has decided to order our Generation Delta this time. Several turbines of this platform are already in operation in Germany, Denmark and Finland."
