The order is for 19 Nordex N117 turbines

The Myllykangas wind farm in the Li region on Finland's north-west coast will be fitted with 19 of the German manufacturer's N117/2400 turbines.

The deal is part of a framework agreement between the two companies signed in 2012 for up to 111 turbines.

Taaleritehdas has already acquired 17 Nordex turbines for the Honkajoki and Nyby-li sites as part of the arrangement.

With a hub height of 120 meters, the turbines will be supplied in a version specifically designed to operate in cold climates typical of the region. Construction is expected to begin in autumn 2014 and the project is scheduled to be connected to the grid in 2015.

The N117 has been a best seller for Nordex in recent years, with the turbine's low-wind capability suiting a European market where many high-wind sites have already been developed.
