German turbine manufacturer Nordex has been handed a 17.5MW order from ABO Wind for two wind farms in the south of Ireland.

The deal is for seven N90/2500 turbines and a five-year service contract. The turbines will go to 15MW Gibbett Hill wind farm and 2.5MW Glenough 2 wind farm. The latter project is an extention to existing   32.5MW Glenough wind farm, which was built by Nordex.

The turbines are expected to be installed at Glenough wind farm in December 2012 and at Gibbett Hill in May 2013. When complete, it will take the total capacity of Nordex machines for ABO to 70MW.
