Nordex has won an order from Macquarie’s Green Investment Group and Hydro Rein to supply 80 of its N163/5.X turbines to the 456MW Feijão wind project that stretches across the northeastern Brazilian states of Piauí and Pernambuco.

The German OEM is slated to supply and install the machines on concrete towers with a hub height of 120 meters starting in the autumn of next year. The wind farm is scheduled to enter operation in the spring of 2024.
