Nordex has obtained a new project order in France for 13 of their N100/2500 turbines. Nordex will supply and install the turbines for the Eplessier Wind Farm, owned by one of the funds TTR Energy manages. The company was also involved in this project to support the three shareholders SAB WindTeam GmbH, Syscom Sarl and Loscon as one of four developers, via its distribution channel “Nordex Development.”
Eplessier Wind is located in the northern French region of Picardie, in the Somme area, and the N100/2500 is a good fit for the wind conditions at this particular site. Nordex will begin delivering the turbines, with a total capacity of 32.5 MW in October 2016, with substantial completion scheduled for the first quarter in 2017. Nordex will also provide service for Eplessier in the frame of a premium contract for a period of 15 years.
The wind farm was mainly locally developed by Syscom Sarl, a project partner with strong regional integration. Nordex contributed to the project development particularly with their technological and permitting expertise and experience with site optimization. Finally the developer SAB WindTeam GmbH secured the financing during development phase, and was in the leading role to structure the sale to the new owner.
