Hamburg - The state-owned energy supplier Hrvatska elektroprivreda (HEP Group) in Croatia has placed an order with the manufacturer for the supply of 18 Nordex N131/3600 turbines for the "Korlat" wind farm.

The Nordex Group is also responsible for service and maintenance of the turbines for a period of 20 years on the basis of a Premium Service Agreement. For the HEP Group this is the first wind farm in its power plant portfolio.

The wind farm Korlat expected production is around 170 GWh, which is around 1.5 percent of Croatian electricity consumption.

Hrvatska elektroprivreda (HEP Group) is the national energy company, which has been dealing with generation, distribution and supply of electricity for more than a century. And in the last few decades it has been dealing with distribution and supply of heat energy and natural gas to customers. By 2030 HEP is planning to increase the proportion of RES from 35 to more than 50 percent. This aim is to be achieved by increase of capacity and generation of existing hydropower plants, by constructing new hydropower plants and by investing into wind power plants, solar power plants as well as other RES.
