Nordex gets 27MW Finland order

German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex has received a 27MW order for the Joukhaisselkä wind park in northern Finland from UK financial investor Impax Asset Management.

Nordex will deliver nine of its N117/3000 turbines of the generation delta platform that has been developed for moderate wind locations, and erect the wind park near the city of Sodankylä in the Lapland region.

Due to the cold climate there, Nordex will equip the turbines with an anti-icing system that the company has already tested successfully in Sweden.

“Finland offers our clients attractive possibilities to enter into the production of green electricity,” says Nordex board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.
