As 2023 drew to a close, the Nordex Group celebrated a substantial milestone with the reception of orders for four wind farms in Sweden, collectively generating 553 MW. The orders, facilitated by Renewable Power Capital, a prominent player in the renewable energy investment sector across Europe, also encompass a comprehensive 35-year Premium Plus Service for the turbines.
In the upcoming spring of 2025, the Nordex Group is set to commence the delivery and installation of 80 turbines. This impressive lineup comprises 74 N163/6.X and six N149/5.X turbines earmarked for the “High Coast” wind farm cluster. The cluster encompasses four distinct wind farms – Knäsjöberget (98 MW), Sörlidberget (140 MW), Vitberget (161 MW), and Storhöjden (154 MW), all strategically positioned in the province of Västerorrlands Län.
The turbines, hailing from the Delta4000 series, will be mounted on tubular steel towers, with hub heights ranging from 105 to 148 meters based on height limitations. Notably, the Nordex Group is set to equip all turbines with a cold-climate version, and the 74 N163/6.X turbines will be integrated with the Nordex Advanced Icing System. This cutting-edge technology aims to mitigate ice formation on rotor blades, ensuring uninterrupted energy production even in icy conditions.
Kevin Devlin, CEO of Renewable Power Capital, commends Nordex's performance and reliability, emphasizing the significance of their commitment to environmental targets and circularity. Devlin expresses satisfaction in partnering with Nordex for such impactful wind farm projects, contributing to the ongoing European energy transition.
Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group, expresses pride in participating in the High Coast wind cluster and highlights the opportunity to showcase the effectiveness of their anti-icing technology in challenging climatic conditions. Landa underscores the project's role in expanding their experience with large-scale ventures in Sweden, further solidifying Nordex's position as a leading provider of wind turbines in Scandinavia.
The wind farms are slated to become operational in 2025, with Nordex actively collaborating with local authorities and municipalities to ensure compliance with regional regulations and requirements.
