Colombia continues to advance in the promotion and use of renewable energy. The Nordex Group has received an order for the supply of 41 N149 / 4.0-4.5 turbines for a wind farm in Colombia.
The N149 / 4.0-4.5 turbines with a rotor diameter of 149 meters will be installed on site in tubular steel towers with a hub height of 105 meters. A report collected by Energía Limpia XXI highlights that the order also includes a service agreement for a period of two years with an option to initially extend for three and then for another five years.
According to the associations, Colombia has considerable wind potential in several regions. Based on official figures, 1,278 wind turbine generators were installed in Latin America in 2019, most of them in Mexico, Brazil and Argentina. Here, the Nordex Group was the second strongest supplier in the region.
