Nordex will supply and install turbines to the 33.1MW Castlepook wind farm, jointly-owned and developed by Irish semi-state companies ESB (Electricity Supply Board) and Coillte. The project site is located in the Ballyhoura Forest in County Cork in the south of Ireland, and will feature 14 N90/2500 wind turbines with a 125 metres tip height.
Turbine delivery will start in summer 2017. The customer has also signed a Premium Service contract for an initial period of six years. In addition to this project, the Nordex has been awarded four new service contracts by ESB for full maintenance of a total of 27 turbines. The wind farms are located in Northern Ireland and in the Republic of Ireland, where turbines from the N80/2500 and N90/2500 product ranges have been operating up to 6 1/2 years. In three cases, the existing Premium service contracts have been renewed for another five years. In the case of Hunters Hill wind farm, ESB has upgraded the existing Extended Service contract to a Premium contract.
