The Nordex Group has been awarded a new contract for the installation of a 11.5MW wind farm in France. Developed by French power station operator Valorem, the wind farm Aunis marks Nordex’s first project since the merger in which Acciona Windpower technology will be used in France.
Nordex is supplying nine AW82/1500 turbines for the wind farm located in the département of Charente-Maritime in the west of France. The turbines will be installed on top of 80-metre high steel tube towers. Nordex will also be servicing the turbines under a 15-year premium contract in conjunction with Valemo, Valorem’s operations and maintenance subsidiary.
