NORDEX AWARDED 111 MW PROJECT IN SOUTH AFRICA
Wednesday, March 25, 2015

Source: Nordex

HAMBURG - Nordex SE is broadening its market position in South Africa with the award of a further firmly financed order for a total of 111 MW. The turn-key project located in the south of the country will have 37 N117/3000 turbines, making it the first one in South Africa to be fitted with Generation Delta turbines.

With wind speeds averaging around 8 m/s at the site, the turbines will be able to produce 424 GWh of clean electricity after being installed. Accordingly, the wind farm will achieve an above-average capacity factor of more than 43 percent.

"The establishment of a local company in 2012 marked an important strategic step forward in our efforts to position ourselves in the emerging South African market. In this way, we are able to handle local projects more swiftly and competently," explains Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, a member of Nordex SE's Management Board.

In the first round of bidding, Nordex Energy South Africa (Pty) Ltd had been awarded the 100 MW "Dorper" project, the 80 MW "Kouga" project and the 134.4 MW "Amakhala" project. Including the project it just announced, Nordex has secured a total of 425.4 MW, equivalent to around 20 percent of the total of 1,983 MW allocated in the first three auctions.
