Nordex says Finnish investment company Taaleritehdas has placed another large-scale order for a further 19 N117/2400 turbines, which are to be supplied for the Myllykangas wind farm on the northwest coast of Finland.

This marks Taaleritehdas' third call-down under a frame contract that was signed in 2012 for a total of up to 111 turbines. It has already acquired 17 Nordex turbines specially developed for IEC-3 wind classes for the Honkajoki and Nyby-li sites.

Myllykangas is located not far from the Nybi-li wind farm in the Ii region, where eight wind turbines are currently under construction. Accordingly, Nordex will also be providing service for the 19 turbines under the current call-down from the joint service point in Kempele. With a nominal output of 2.4 MW each and a hub height of 120 meters, the turbines will be supplied in the cold-climate version and are scheduled to be connected to the grid in 2015. Nordex says Myllykangas will be Finland’s largest wind farm and form a single cluster together with Nyby-Li.
