Norwegian hydro power giant Statkraft is expanding its presence in Latin America, with an 110MW wind turbine order for German manufacturer Nordex.

The OEM early next year is slated to deliver 19 of its N163/5.X machines for the Torsa project in the central Chilean municipality of Litueche south of Santiago de Chile.

The project is Statkraft’s second order for Nordex in South America. The Norwegians in late 2020 had already placed an order for 91 of the manufacturer’s N163/5X turbines for the Ventos de Santa Eugenia project in Brazil.
