Nordex has received the 15th order from Falck Renewables. The manufacturer will supply ten N90/2500 turbines for the Assel Valley wind farm near the south-west coast of Scotland.
The supply schedule includes the turnkey construction of the wind farm, including the civil and electrical infrastructure works. The Assel Valley wind farm is located to the south-east of Girvan in South Ayrshire. The average wind speed at this site is around 9 m/s, corresponding to wind class IEC-1. In order to ensure that the turbines do not exceed the permissible tip height, Nordex is installing them on 65-metre towers, which the company has developed especially for the UK wind market. Nordex has already started construction work on the Assel Valley wind farm, which is due to be handed over to the customer in October 2016. Following commissioning, Nordex will be in charge of servicing the turbines and associated works for at least five years on the basis of a service contract.
