• Follow-up order for N163/5.X turbines from South America


Hamburg (renewablepress) - Europe's largest producer of renewable energy, the Norwegian Statkraft, has placed an order with the Nordex Group for 19 N163/5.X turbines for Chile. The order also includes a Premium Service contract covering three years.

The Delta4000 turbines are intended for the 110 MW "Torsa" project. The wind farm will be built in central Chile in the municipality of Litueche in the General Liberator Bernardo O'Higgins region to the south of Santiago de Chile.

The Nordex Group will supply the turbines in spring 2022 on tubular steel towers with a hub height of 148 metres. After its completion, "Torsa" will feed around 300 GWh of clean electricity into the Chilean grid, equivalent to the average energy use in 100,000 households.

"Torsa" is the second order the Nordex Group has received from Statkraft in South America. As recently as the end of 2020 Statkraft placed an order with the Nordex Group for the supply and installation of 91 N163/5.X turbines for the 518.7 MW "Ventos de Santa Eugenia" project in Brazil.
