German renewables company Nordex is to build two wind farms in Pakistan.Nordex wind turbine

It will deliver a total of 40 of its N100/2500 turbines (pictured) to the new wind farms in the province of Sindh.

Because of the high ambient temperature conditions at the sites, Nordex has created hot climate versions of the turbines which are designed to operate in temperatures of up to 45 degrees Celsius.

Construction is poised to begin on the projects and both are expected to go online in summer of 2016.

After completion, Nordex will be providing service for the wind farms for a further 10 years.

The operators of the two projects are the independent power producers Yunus Energy and Metro Power.
