Nordex to Install 10-MW Turnkey Wind Farm in France


Nordex SE has received a new order via its project development division in France. The customer is Saméole and the manufacturer will be installing four Gamma N100/2500 turbines for its Ondefontaine wind farm. The order includes the delivery of the turbines, their turnkey installation and long term service for the wind farm. In addition, Nordex developed the project in close collaboration with its customer Saméole.

Ondefontaine is situated near the north-west coast of France in the Basse-Normandie region, an area with a moderate amount of forest cover.

Nordex started construction work on the project in June and it is due to be connected to the grid in May 2016. Following commissioning, the manufacturer will support the wind farm for a period of 10 years on the basis of a premium service agreement.  The turbines are able to supply more than 6,500 households with green electricity.

Nordex has more than 10 years of experience in developing wind projects in France. Saméole similarly has a strong local presence, and is able to contribute a lot of knowledge about the region to the project. The developer currently runs nine wind farms in France.
