Hamburg, 1 October 2015. Nordex will be supplying Frodsham Wind Farm
Limited in UK, owned by Peel Energy and Belltown Power, with 19 N90/2650
wind turbines. This version of the N90/2500 Gamma strong-wind turbine has
been especially developed for the Frodsham" project.

Originally designed to accommodate 21 turbines, the wind farm is located on
the Frodsham Marshes roughly 12 kilometres north-east of Chester. The
scheme was redesigned and the number of turbines reduced following
consultation with the local community and nature conservation experts. To
ensure that the planned total capacity of at least 50 megawatts could still
be achieved, Nordex has developed an exclusive higher-output version of the
N90/2500 for this project. As a result, the wind farm will have a certified
output of 50.35 megawatts.

"With the Frodsham project, we have shown that we are flexible enough to
accommodate our customers' individual requirements. However, the N90/2650
will not be going into bulk production," explains Lars Bondo Krogsgaard,
CEO of Nordex. The specific conditions prevailing at the "Frodsham" site
favoured the development of this innovative solution. "The wind in this
region exhibits only minor turbulence and the climate is mild. This allowed
our engineers to increase the turbine output," says Krogsgaard.
 
Construction work at "Frodsham " commenced in April 2015, with the delivery
of the initial turbines scheduled for the second quarter of 2016. After it
goes into operation, the wind farm will produce some 100,000 gigawatthours
of electricity per annum, sufficient to supply around 24,000 homes. After
"Scout Moor" and "Port of Liverpool", "Frodsham" is the third wind farm at
which Peel Energy is installing Nordex turbines.
