Nordex Group Obtains Major Order for 312 MW from Spain

Hamurg, Germany - End of June, the Nordex Group has obtained a large order from Spain: the Group will supply and install N149/4.0-4.5 turbines in the 4.8 MW operating mode for the 312 MW "Gecama" wind farm.

The customer is Enlight Renewable Energy, an Israeli power utility using renewable energy. "Gecama" is the first project in Spain for the company, which operates in Israel and Europe, and the first joint project with the Nordex Group. The order also includes a Premium Service contract covering a period of 20 years.

The "Gecama" project is being set up near the city of Cuenca in the region of Castilla-La Mancha. The Nordex Group will install the Delta4000 turbines with a hub height of 120 metres on concrete towers that the company will produce by itself in its new Spanish factory in Motilla del Palancar in Castilla-La Mancha which starts operation in August 2020.

"We are pleased that our technology is able to make a major contribution to the expansion of wind energy in Spain with another project. We are happy to support Enlight with its first wind project in this country and are delighted that Israel's largest wind farm developer and operator has opted for the turbines from the Delta4000 series. In addition to the low cost of energy and high yields, the N149/4.0-4.5 is particularly suitable for the local wind conditions," says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
