Nordex gets 115MW in orders for wind farms in Sweden

German wind OEM Nordex Group has received two orders from the Swedish units of Italian developer Falck Renewables for the Aliden and Brattmyrliden wind farms in Sweden’s Vaäserbotten region with a combined capacity of 115MW.

Preliminary works for the installation of the 31 Nordex N131/3900 turbines have already started.

Commercial operations are expected in the fourth quarter of 2019 at the Aliden wind farm, and in the fourth quarter of 2020 at the Brattmyrliden wind park.

Wind speeds in the area at some 100 kilometres west of the Swedish city of Umea are between 7.6 and 7.8 metres per second.

"The terms and turbines of this contract are absolutely a prime example of how to optimize the technology choice and work cooperatively to reduce the LCOE of a windfarm,” Falck Renewables chief executive Toni Volpe said.

The turbines are equipped with cold climate packages with the Nordex anti-icing system installed on the rotor blades that allow the two wind farms to achieve an above-average net capacity factor of approximately 40%, expected to generate approximately 420 GWh of energy per year, the OEM said.
