The Chinese utilities Beijing Energy and Ningxia Electric Power have ordered a total of 38 wind turbines from the S77/1500 series from Nordex.
The turbines are due to start operation as early as the summer of this year. With 33 machines, the “Keyouzhongqi” wind farm, owned by the customer Beijing Energy, accounts for the larger part of the deliveries now agreed. At the site in Inner Mongolia temperatures can reach as low as 30 degrees below zero. For this reason Nordex is supplying the cold-climate version of the turbines. As of May, Nordex will also be providing five turbines for Ningxia Power’s “Taiyanshan” and “Mahuangshan I” wind farms. In addition to this, there are plans to extend the “Mahuangshan II” project. Nordex is installing the wind farms in the province of Ningxia, where the turbine manufacturing facility jointly operated by Nordex and Ningxia Power is located.
