The Italian Maccaferri Group has ordered ten Nordex N100/2500 turbines via its energy subsidiary Seci Energia. In addition to this, Seci Energia has signed a contract for at least five years of Nordex Premium Service.
The turbines will be installed in the “San Biagio” wind farm in Calabria Region as of July 2012. With a nominal output of 25 megawatts, “San Biagio” will generate more than 50 gigawatt hours of electricity a year, sufficient to cover the electricity requirements of some 15,000 Italian households.
“Nordex Italia has more than 500 megawatt of wind turbines connected to the grid, primarily our N90 machine. With `San Biagio´ we will sell the first batch of the N100/2500 for installation in Italy, and we look forward to demonstrating the qualities of this product in mid wind conditions there”, says Nordex CSO Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.
The N100/2500 has become increasingly attractive for investors in Europe and North America, and has been the most frequently ordered Nordex turbine for the past two years. More than 180 N100/2500 turbines are on grid today. Italy is the ninth country where Nordex will be installing the N100/2500.
