Nordex supplying turbines for Lithuania’s 264MW Pagegiai wind farm

UAB Renerga, a renewables developer and subsidiary of Achema Group, has chosen Nordex to provide 40 turbines for a 264MW wind farm in Lithuania. The N163/6.X turbines from the Delta4000 series will be set up at the Pagegiai wind farm in the western part of the country.

The agreement also covers a premium service contract for the turbines. Groundwork for the wind farm is scheduled to start in June this year, with turbine delivery and installation planned for spring 2025 and the wind farm’s completion expected in 2026. Nordex will install the turbines on tubular steel towers, with 29 towers at a height of 118m and 11 at 113m.

Nordex Group’s chief sales officer, Patxi Landa, expressed pride in collaborating with UAB Renerga for the first time on this significant 264MW Pagegiai project. He views the supply contract as the beginning of a strong partnership between both groups.

UAB Renerga, through its subsidiary UAB LT Energija, secured a €100m loan from Nordic Investment Bank (NIB) for constructing the wind farm and its related infrastructure. Once operational, the wind farm is projected to produce approximately 602GWh of clean energy annually. All electricity generated will be bought by Achema to produce green ammonia using green hydrogen.

Chairman Lidija Lubiene of Achema Group stated that: Renerga is a pioneer in renewable energy in Lithuania. The Pagėgiai project signifies a continuation of their firm dedication to renewables. She believes this project is a significant advancement for both their renewables group and Lithuania’s renewable energy objectives overall.

Recently, the German wind turbine manufacturer secured a contract to provide 57 N163/5.X turbines from the Delta4000 series for a project in South Africa. The client has opted to remain undisclosed. This order is for three wind farms, each with a capacity of 112.1MW, situated in the Eastern Cape Province.

During the recent WindEurope conference in Bilbao, Spain, RWE finalized an agreement with the company for the supply of wind turbines totaling 800MW. RWE intends to purchase 120 turbines from Nordex by mid-2026, earmarked for its main European markets.
