Texas: Nordex Awarded 312 MW Wind Farm Contract from the USA

Hamburg, Germany - The Nordex Group has won a major contract in the United States. For a wind farm in Texas, the manufacturer will be supplying 65 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines in 4.8 MW operating mode.

Construction of the 312 MW wind farm is scheduled to commence in May 2021 and grid connection is to take place in the same year. The project and customer are undisclosed.

“This order underscores again the growing interest of our US customers in the powerful turbines of the Delta4000 series. With regards to the N149/4.0-4.5 turbines with a 4.8 MW rated capacity, the Nordex Group is now delivering and installing 265 units, amounting meanwhile to 1,272 MW, of this model alone in North America. These turbines exceed the average nominal capacity of last year’s installed onshore turbines by more than 2 MW in the USA,” says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
