Wind farm developer Energiequelle has once again commissioned the Nordex Group to supply and install turbines in Finland. As of mid-2023, the Nordex Group is to supply eight N163/5.X turbines for the 45.6 MW Lumivaara project. The order also includes a Premium Service agreement for the turbines with a term of 30 years. The Lumivaara wind farm will be built in the municipality of Hyrynsalmi in Kainuu, a region in the north-east of Finland. The Nordex Group will supply the N163 turbines in the project-specific 5.7 MW operating mode. The machines will be configured in the cold-climate version for operation at temperatures down to -30 C and equipped with the Nordex Advanced Anti-Icing System for the rotor blades.
Lumivaara is the third order from Energiequelle placed in the course of this year. In April 2021, the international project developer placed an order with the Nordex Group for the supply and installation of the Takanebacken and Torvenkylä wind farms, totalling 68 MW. These two orders also include a Premium Service contract for the turbines for a period of 30 years.
