Nordex has installed its first N117/2400 wind farm in Finland, simultaneously passing an important milestone in this country. Mounted on steel tube towers with a height of 120 metres, the turbines will yield of up to 75 GWh per year. Honkajoki is the first project under a frame contract signed with Taaleritehdas in June 2012 providing for the delivery of up to 111 turbines.

Nordex completed the Honkajoki wind farm ahead of schedule thus allowing Taaleritehdas to generate energy earlier than anticipated and tap into the “early bird premium” for wind power generated before 2016. “This marks a real success for our new activities in Finland and creates an excellent basis for future projects with Taaleritehdas,” says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, a member of Nordex SE’s Management Board.

“Since Nordex was able to outperform our expectations in supplying the turbines for our first project, we have even greater confidence in Nordex as a professional wind turbine manufacturer. The remarkable performance of the Nordex team in its first project in Finland provides a very good basis for our future co-operation, in which we will be installing more Nordex turbines in Finland” says Taamir Fareed, director of wind energy businesses for Taaleritehdas Private Equity funds.

Honkajoki is located in a flat woodland region in the south-west of Finland. Thanks to the Nordex N117 wind turbine and its remarkable suitability for Finnish wind conditions, the wind farm achieves a high capacity factor around 40 %.
