Hamburg, September 18, 2006. Nordex AG has been awarded a contract for the construction of the Vicari wind farm. In the initial construction phase, the wind farm will comprise 15 N90/2500 turbines. The project is worth around EUR 47 million. In addition to supplying the turbines, Nordex is also responsible for constructing the access routes, the foundations, the cabling and the substation. A further three turbines of the same kind are currently still in the permission-granting phase. Including this option, the contract will have a total value of around EUR 55 million. "The second major project received by Nordex Italia within a short space of time underscores the importance which the high-growth Italian market has for our business," explains Nordex CEO Thomas Richterich.

The customer and later operator of the wind farm is ERG CESA Eolica, a joint venture forged by Italian energy Group ERG and the Spanish CESA Group. Start of production of the turbines on a range of hills (700 m) near Palermo is to commence in August 2007. With a tower height of 80 meters, the 15 turbines will yield up to 100 gigawatt/hours, sufficient to cover the requirements of around 33,000 households.
