With the award of two contracts for the construction of wind farms with a combined capacity of 148MW, the Nordex Group has entered the new growth market Argentina. 32 AW 125/3000 turbines are to be installed for the La Castellana project, while the Archiras project entails 15 turbines of the same type.
Construction is to commence in the fourth quarter of 2017 for expected completion in summer 2018. In both cases, Nordex will be installing the wind farms for its new customer Central Puerto, a utility company in Argentine. The contracts are the result of the first tender for delivery contracts for green electricity in Argentina. In October 2016, the government awarded contracts for a total capacity of more than 1.1GW, most of which were for wind power projects (700W). In a second call for tenders in November, contracts for a further 600MW, including 400MW for wind power, were awarded.
