30 of the machines are going to the Chinese utility Ningxia Electric Power, for which Nordex has already installed more than 160 MW. The S77/1500 turbines will be connected to the grid near the city of Wuzhong in the province of Ningxia. These represent the third and fourth phase in construction of the Sunhill wind farm and promise an annual yield of around 90 gigawatt hours.
The second order is for ten N90/2300 turbines in the “Hot Climate” version for the S. Macário II wind farm, which Nordex will be installing on a turnkey basis. The customer is Windway, a joint subsidiary of Infusion (energy division of Grupo Meneses) and of the bank group Banco Espírito Santo. The wind farm is being built in the North of Portugal in the Serra de Montemuro. The expected annual energy yield amounts to more than 72 gigawatt hours. For Windways, S. Macário II is the first wind project in Portugal.
Negotiations are in progress for further projects with Nordex in Poland and other European countries.
