German Nordex has received a much-needed order – or, in any case, a much-needed order for wind energy project Hoort at 57.6 MW, which will be installed in the federal state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and is expected to be commissioned next summer, reports Nordex in a statement.

The project is a cluster of smaller wind farms developed in collaboration between developers Loscon and Mea Energieagentur, a subsidiary of the utility Wemag. The project will be comprised of 16 turbines of the model N17/3600 and will have a 15-year service contract attached – also featuring a five-year extension option.

Nordex has previously supplied turbines to Loscon's 32.5 MW Suckow project in the same northern German state. The most recent order – of which Loscon ordered 10 of the 16 turbines – is larger both in itself and on a state level. The combined facility will be the largest in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

The project was among the group of projects that were allocated in this year's third onshore wind tender held in August.
