Nordex Scores Triple Win In France, Also Installs Largest Turbine To Date

The Nordex Group has been awarded three new contracts covering a total capacity of 36 megawatts in France. Different project developers and power station operators have placed orders for the installation of a total of 13 N131/3000, N117/3000 and N117/2400 turbines. The company will be installing its N131/3000 turbine in France for the first time. With a rotor diameter of 131 metres, it will be the largest turbine installed in France to date. The turbine will be able to generate large energy yields even in light wind regions and fits perfectly to the site conditions thanks to its very low acoustic output levels. With an installed capacity of over 1.7 GW, Nordex is one of the market leaders in France, servicing its customers’ wind power systems via a dense network of 15 service stations. Work on the wind farms is to commence this year.

Morocco Rises: Starts Construction On The World’s Largest Solar Power Complex

In the presence of the Moroccan King, Mohammed VI, construction commenced on the country’s fourth power plant – NOORo IV – which will become the largest solar power complex in the world, providing electricity for 1.3 million people. After commissioning, at the beginning of 2018, the PV plant will enable annual savings of at least 56,000 tonnes in CO2 emissions. When all four power plants are combined, CO2 emissions will be reduced by around 800,000 tonnes every year. The Noor complex is scheduled to be completed by 2019 and supply a total of 580 MW of output power from three solar thermal energy plants and one photovoltaic plant.
