The Nordex Group has signed a contract with the North American subsidiary of the French energy group Engie S.A. to supply and install wind turbines at the Prairie Hill project, near to the town of Mart in Texas.
The 300-MW project will include 100 of Nordex’s AW140/3000 series. The turbines will be installed on 82-meter towers — which represents the largest swept area wind turbine available in the marketplace with a tip height below 500 feet. The turbines are to be delivered in 2020.
“We are pleased to be working with a new and important international customer, Engie, and we are bringing technology to the table that enables the lowest cost of energy solution, one which is perfectly suited to the conditions of their Texas project,” says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
