The Nordex Group is benefiting from the renaissance of the Spanish wind-power market. Utility Gas Natural Fenosa Renovables (GNFR) ordered 58 AW132/3300 from Nordex this past December. The contract covers the installation of six wind farms, as well as multi-year services for the turbines.
Construction of the first turbines will commence in the summer of 2018. All projects are located in regions of Spain where the Nordex has manufacturing facilities.
In addition, the towers will be produced locally using the process developed by the Nordex Group. The awards for the projects were gained by GNFR under a tendering process in 2017, in which the company was among the most successful participants.
“The Spanish market is regaining momentum after a protracted lull, with international key accounts such as Gas Natural Fenosa holding key strategic significance for us,” said Patxi Landa, Chief Sales Officer of Nordex SE.
