The Nordex Group has received orders for the supply of turbines for four wind farms with a total of 43.2 MW from one of Belgium’s largest wind farm operators, Aspiravi. The orders also include a Premium Service contract for the turbines covering a period of 20 years.

In the region of Wallonia, the following wind farms are being built: “Saint Ode” with five N131/3600 turbines and a total of 18 MW, “Fernelmont” with two N117/3600 turbines for 7.2 MW and “Perwez”, also with two N117/3600 turbines for 7.2 MW. The Nordex Group is to supply one N131/3600 and two N117/3600 turbines for the 10.8 MW “Ninove – Denderleeuw – Aalst” wind farm in Flanders. Delivery and installation work is due to start in summer 2023 with the first turbine in the four wind farms starting operation at the end of 2023.

“Together with these four projects, since 2020 we have received orders totalling more than 100 MW from Aspiravi in Belgium. We are very happy about the renewed confidence shown in our technology,” says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
