The order has now also been awarded for the final construction phase of the "Syvash" wind farm with 113.1 MW in Ukraine: the Nordex Group has received an order to supply a further 29 turbines from the N131/3900 series. In February 2019 the Nordex Group had already reported the order to supply the first 34 machines with 132.6 MW for "Syvash", marking the company's entry into the Ukraine market. After its completion in 2020, with its 245.7 MW "Syvash" will be the largest wind farm in Ukraine.

Nordex contract partner is Powerchina Ltd., which will build the wind farm for the local project company SyvashEnergoProm, a joint venture comprising the Norwegian project developer NBT AS and Total Eren, a leading French based renewable energy IPP.

The electricity generated from Syvash will be sold to state-owned company "Energorynok" - Ukraine's wholesale electricity market operator. Once the entire wind farm is completed, it will feed 840,000 MWh of clean electricity a year into the grid and can supply approximately the needs of 100,000 households. It is expected to reduce CO2 emissions by 465,000 tonnes per year.

The wind farm is to be built in the region of Kherson, on the north shore of Lake Syvash.
