Hamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group wins orders in Colombia: Celsia Colombia S.A., an electricity producer and distributor, has ordered 63 N155 turbines with a total of 369 MW for three projects. The orders also include a Premium Service contract for maintenance of the turbines for a period of five years with an option to extend by a further five years.

The Acacia II and Camelias wind farms will be built in the Guajira region, and the Carreto project in Atlantico, all of them in the north of Colombia. Two N155/4.8 turbines are to be used in the Carreto wind farm, 16 N155/5.X in Acacia II and 45 N155/5.X machines in Camelias.

Installation is due to commence as of spring 2023. The 63 turbines will be installed on concrete towers with a hub height of 120 metres, which will be manufactured locally by the Nordex Group.

Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group: “In the last years, Colombia has been developing to a new key country in Latin America for the Nordex Group. We will now work closely with Celsia to help them to achieve their goals at their first wind energy project in Colombia.”

When the wind farms are completed in 2023 the Nordex Group will be able to boast installed capacity in Colombia totalling 594 MW. In 2020 the Nordex Group 2020 received a 205 MW order for the supply and installation of 41 N149/4.X turbines.

Marcos Cardaci, VP Region Latin America of the Nordex Group: “We thank Celsia for the trust placed in Nordex and our technology and we trust in the great future of the Colombian market”.

In order to meet the increasing demand for electricity in the country and to reduce the risk of outages - also caused by periods of drought - the Colombian government plans to diversify the energy mix by the increasing the use of wind power.
