RWE Innogy recently ordered seven N117/2400 wind turbines from Nordex for the 17-MW Opalenica project in Poland. The wind turbines are to be installed in summer 2015. The company has also signed a 15-year premium service contract for the turbines.
The Opalenica project is located in the Poznan region. RWE opted for the N117/2400 as this turbine is specifically designed to match most of the conditions prevailing at the site, said the company. Consequently, the wind farm will have an above-average capacity factor of 34%, despite the fact that the overall height of the systems has been capped at 150 m by an administrative order. The high efficiency of the turbines will be decisive when the new rules for auction system will apply for tenders.
To date, Nordex has installed 14 wind farms with a combined output of 240 MW in Poland. These also include several large-scale projects with up to 22 multi-megawatt turbines.
