The manufacturer will be installing 13 N131/3000 turbines for the "Kivivaara" wind farm. Nordex will be delivering the turbines in the late summer of this year and guarantees full service on the basis of a 15-year Premium Service contract.

"Kivivaara" is located in the north-east of Finland. The region is known for its forest-covered hills and large quantities of snow and ice. Its wind speeds offer good conditions for the N131/3000. Nordex will be supplying all turbines in the 39 MW project with the anti-icing system to prevent ice formation on the rotor blades and thus reduce turbine outages. In permafrost conditions the system can increase yields by up to 25 percent. One of the advantages here is the low energy consumption by the anti-icing system.

Including the third call-off, Taaleri has already ordered 30 turbines with a total of 90 MW from the 216 MW frame contract. The remaining three projects agreed are planned for installation by the end of 2017 at the latest.
