Nordex wins deal for 99 MW windfarm in Argentina

German windpower group Nordex is to provide the turbines for a 99 MW wind farm in Argentina.

It has won a contract from AES Argentina Generaciàƒ³n, a subsidiary of energy group AES Corporation, for the delivery of 30 of its AW132/3300 turbines for the Energética wind farm in Buenos Aires.

Nordex will assemble the turbines and also build the 120-metre high concrete towers in Argentina.The Nordex wind turbine factory in Brazil

In July, Hamburg-headquartered Nordex won its biggest ever single contract: for 191 turbines at a 595 MW windfarm in Brazil.

It will supply and install the turbines at the Lagoa dos Ventos project for Enel Green Power.

The AW125 turbines have an installed capacity of 3.15 or 3.0 MW and will be mounted on top of 120-metre high concrete towers which Nordex will be producing at its own plant in Brazil.

The windfarm is located in the state of Piaui in the north of Brazil, which has strong wind conditions.

Nordex will start work on the windfarm from October next year. The deal with Enel Green Power brings the total capacity installed and under construction by Nordex in Brazil to 1.9 GW.

In April, Nordex opened a production plant in theà‚ Brazilianà‚ state of Brazil Piaui to produce 65 concrete towers required for another windfarm in the country, Lagoa do Barro.

The factory marked one of the first major investments in the Brazil Piaui’sà‚ windpower industry.

Nordex said the factory will enable it to optimize the construction costs of the windfarm and complete construction work with minimum environmental impact.
