Nordex to supply for Lithuanian wind power market

Nordex has achieved its first contract from Lithuania to supply eight N117/3000 wind turbines for the “Jurbarkas” 24-MW wind farm from 2015.

Nordex will install N117/3000 Generation Delta turbines on 120-metre towers. Starting in November 2015, the farm will begin to produce 80 GWh of electricity.

The contract also includes the provision of service by Nordex over 15 years. Nordex will establish a service point close to the wind farm.

The project developer for “Jurbarkas” is Eurakras, owned 86 percent by Renagro and 14 percent by Baltcap.
