A year after its return to the Swedish market, Nordex is increasingly scoring with the country's major utilities.
Now, DONG Energy A/S, a merger of six Danish energy companies, has awarded Nordex a contract for the construction of the Storrun wind farm, which is to comprise 12 Nordex N90/2500 kW wind turbines. Located in the central Swedish province of Jämtland, the wind farm is to be installed during Summer 2009 and go into operation at the end of 2009. DONG and Nordex are jointly planning to use the site to make testing of different equipment which will improve the performance of the turbines during icing weather conditions. Vattenfall and E.ON have each ordered two wind turbines from the same platform. Vattenfall wants to use them in its "Ryningnäs" project in Smaeland, where it plans to test wind farm sites in non-coastal forest regions. E.ON, for its part, is repowering its "Axeltopfta" wind farm in Landskrona.
