Nordex wins 17MW France order

Nordex has won a 17MW order to equip a wind farm in France – the first from the country for its N117/2400 turbine.

The German manufacturer will deliver seven of the machines to the Lazenay project planned by VSB Energies Nouvelles in the low wind-speed French interior department of Cher.

Work on the project is due to start in the second half of this year, with completion in early 2015.

The deal includes a 15-year service agreement.

Nordex and VSB will work together on more projects over the next few months, said the German manufacturer.
