Nordex says it has won a contract from a subsidiary of one of Italy's largest utilities for the construction of a 50 MW wind farm in Uruguay. The project, which is located about 60 km from the Brazilian border, will feature 20 N100/2500 turbines.

Situated in the Cerro Largo area, the wind farm is characterized by mean wind speeds of over 8.5 m/s - ideal for the N100/2500 turbine, which Nordex says has been specially designed for the IEC-2 wind class. Moreover, the customer has signed up for the premium light service for a period of two years.

Uruguay has set the goal of covering 30% of its electricity requirements by wind power in 2015, notes Nordex.
