The turbine manufacturer says the supply deals cover five projects of 20 machines each, subject to their approval by the Pakistan authorities and securing finance.
All the developments are in Sindh Province and will use Nordex’s N100/2500 turbines.
Two of the projects, owned by subsidiaries of the Fauji Foundation industrial conglomerate, will see construction begin in 2012.
Another Fauji subsidiary, Fauji Fertlizer Company, awarded Nordex its first 50MW project in Pakistan in 2010, for which the first turbines will be shipped next month.
The customers for the other three projects are Gul Ahmed Wind Power, Metro Power Company and Yunus Energy. Construction of those wind farms is due to take place next year and in 2013.
Parent companies Gul Ahmed Energy and Yunus Brothers Group have already invested in conventional power in Pakistan and are now expanding their portfolios with renewable projects.
“Pakistan is the most important Asian market outside China for Nordex today,” says the German group’s chief strategy officer Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.
“The fact that we were able to sign contracts with four customers at the same time shows that we are already a very trusted supplier there.”
Nordex says it is convinced that Pakistan’s wind market will develop at a rapid pace, noting that the country’s government estimates the exploitable potential in Sindh Province alone to be around 11GW.
