The Nordex Group has received an order for 400 MW from Norway using wind turbines in the 5MW+ class. The Nordex Group will supply and install 72 N149/5.X turbines, with 105 meter steel towers, at the Øyfjellet wind farm for a German investor.
Following completion of the project in autumn 2021, the Nordex Group will be responsible for full maintenance of the wind turbines for a minimum period of 20 years, with options to extend this contract up to a total of 30 years. The project is located near the town of Mosjøen in the municipality of Vefsn. The Øyfjellet project was developed by Eolus Vind which signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with Alcoa Norway in 2018. Alcoa will purchase the clean electricity generated in the Oyfjellet wind farm for 15 years in order to supply power to its aluminium production plant in nearby Mosjøen as well as the electricity needs of the local community.
