The Orla development will be made up of 15 of Nordex's N100/2500 turbines. The first nine of these machines will be installed imminently, with commissioning due as early as December.

The remaining six turbine are expected to be up and running by the middle of 2015. Due to the harsh winter conditions at the site in eastern Poland, the turbines have been adapted to deal with extreme cold weather.

Orla is being developed by Nordex's development arm, making it the first project realised by Nordex in Poland. Thewind farm is owned by C&C Wind, an international private-equity investment vehicle.

Project finance has largely been provided by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

Poland has an installed capacity of 3.4GW, with nearly 900MW added last year. However, regulatory uncertainty has put a brake on development, with significantly less capacity expected to be installed this year.
