Nordex Group receives 63 MW order from OX2 in PolandJun 23, 2022 by Energy Connects
Swedish wind farm developer OX2 has placed an order with the Nordex Group for the supply of eleven N149/5.X turbines for the Wysoka wind farm in Poland, the company said on Thursday.
The 63 MW Wysoka wind farm will be built 125km to the south-east of Koszalin in the north-west of Poland. The Nordex Group will supply the N149/5.X turbines on tubular steel towers with hub heights of 125 metres. The order also includes a premium service for the turbines covering a period of 30 years, Nordex said in a statement.
According to the company, installation of the turbines is due to begin in mid-2023 with commissioning following in 2024. OX2 will then take over technical and operational management of the wind farm for the owner, the Ingka Group.
Wysoka is the first order from Poland for N149/5.X turbines. With a nominal capacity of 5.7 MW, they are the most powerful wind turbine generators to be used in Poland to date.
Europe installed a record 17.4 gigawatts of wind power capacity in 2021, according to figures from WindEurope. However, the Brussels-based authority said that to reach its 40% renewable energy target for 2030, the EU needs to build 30 GW of new wind a year.
