Bremen-based Energiekontor AG signed a contract with the wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group yesterday for the supply of the latest generation of turbines with total rated power of more than 300 MW. The turbines are to be installed successively in projects in Germany. The first joint projects are scheduled to be commissioned in 2019.

The agreement provides Energiekontor with a solid economic basis for participating successfully in future auctions. The turbine manufacturer, in turn, benefits from reliable, contractually agreed conditions for purchases over several years.

The head of the Nordex Group's business in Germany, Jörg Hempel, comments: “What convinced us was Energiekontor's track record and the company’s reliable realisation of projects in recent years. We have created what I perceive as a win-win situation here, which allows us to implement, together with a strong project development partner, a series of planned projects in the next few years.”

Peter Szabo, CEO of Energiekontor AG, adds: “We would like to thank Mr Hempel and his colleagues for their confidence in us, as they expect that the projects initiated together will be able to come out successfully in the auctions to be held in the coming years. We are delighted to have Nordex, a renowned manufacturer of top-quality turbines, at our side along this journey. As part of our efficiency enhancement measures, the agreed package gives us a predictable basis for the profitable implementation of wind farms in the coming years. With its vision of electricity demands being fully covered by renewable energy, Energiekontor wants to be one of the first companies to realise wind farms and solar parks at levelized cost of electricity below the generation costs of conventional power plants.”
