Nordex Group builds wind farm for its new customer UKA for the first time

- First project from 300 MW framework contract for Germany


Hamburg (renewablepress) - Nordex Group has delivered turbines for the wind farm developer UKA for the first time and completed the first construction phase of a wind farm in Germany. The 13.5 MW wind farm "Leeskow II & IV" with three N149/4.0-4.5 turbines in Lower Lusatia in Brandenburg is the first project that the Nordex Group has now completed on the basis of a framework agreement concluded with UKA at the beginning of 2020.

In the coming years, UKA will be able to call up turbines with a total volume of more than 300 megawatts for German projects, which will then be supplied and installed by the Nordex Group. The framework agreement covers different turbine types of the Delta4000 series, in addition to the N149/4.0-4.5, in particular the 5 MW turbines N149/5.X and N163/5.X.

"The Nordex Group has a very competitive turbine technology," emphasizes Gernot Gauglitz, Managing Director of UKA. "The partnership gives us the security to complete our ready-to-build wind farm projects quickly and reliably."

"We are pleased that, despite the pandemic and short delivery times, we have installed our first project for our new customer UKA on time. UKA is one of the largest wind farm developers in Germany. Thanks to the framework agreement, we are expanding our customer base and thus strengthening our position as one of the leading turbine suppliers in the important German market," says Karsten Brüggemann, Vice President Region Central of the Nordex Group.
