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.
