JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Nordex is awarded with a second order for the South American country, Uruguay.

The company announced on Wednesday that they had concluded another agreement with the Uruguay's state power company, Usinas y Trasmisiones Electricas (UTE). Their agreement consists of the sale of an additional 28 wind turbines for the Juan Pablo Terra farm.

This is the second order they received after they announced on Monday, that the corporation has plans for the construction of a new wind farm just outside Uruguay's capital in the Florida district. The project was agreed upon on Monday, consists of the delivery of 21 wind turbines on 91 meters towers to the Akuo Energy.

Nordex is responsible for delivery, installation and commissioning for constant maintenance on both orders, for at least ten years, thanks to a "Premium Service Contract" that both companies have agreed on.

This is the second country the company has collaborated with in the past. They succeeded in their initial project of delivering turbines in France. Both companies hope to have the same success in Uruguay.

The electricity produce will be enough to power 73.000 homes. The state's power company, Usinas y Trasmisiones Electricas (UTE), will be using the power, under a 20-year power purchase agreement with Akuo Energy.

The project was already considered in the December 2012 order intake by Nordex.
