Under the contract, Nordex will be responsible for the supply of nine N149/4.0-4.5 turbines in 4.8MW operating mode for wind farm.

The Kokkoneva wind project will be built south of Kestilä in the municipality of Siikalatva in north-eastern Bottnia.

Nordex said that the supplied wind turbines will be designed for cold climates and will be installed on tubular steel towers with a hub height of 155m, allowing them to generate the highest possible yield at the site.
