6 MW Turbines: Nordex Receives 255 MW Major Order From Estonia

Hamburg, Germany - The Nordex Group has received a major order from the Estonian company Enefit Green for the delivery of wind turbines with a capacity of 255 MW. The order is for 38 N163/6.X turbines for the Sopi I, Sopi II and Tootsi wind farms.

The Nordex Group was successful in a public tender at the end of last year and has now been awarded the contract by Enefit Green. Sopi I, Sopi II and Tootsi are being built in the municipality of North Pärnu. With a capacity of around 255 MW, the Sopi-Tootsi wind farm cluster with N163/6.X turbines will currently be the most powerful wind project in the Baltic States. The expected annual electricity production is around 700 million kWh (GWh).

Aavo Kärmas, CEO of Enefit Green: "Sopi-Tootsi Wind Farm will be the most modern and powerful renewable energy production area in Estonia and the Baltic States and will nearly double the current amount of wind energy produced in Estonia."

According to Nordex, the 255 MW Sopi-Tootsi wind farm will cover more than 8 per cent of the electricity consumed in Estonia. At the end of 2022, wind turbines with a capacity of around 320 MW were in operation in Estonia.
