Lithuanian developer Renerga has picked Nordex to supply 40 turbines for the 264MW Pagėgiai wind farm in western Lithuania.

Renerga is a subsidiary of Achema Group, and is set to start infrastructure works on the projects in June 2024. Turbine installation is due to start in spring 2025, with commissioning due in 2026.

Lidija Lubiene, chairman of Achema Group, said: “The Pagėgiai project is an important continuation of our strong traditions and commitments to renewables. We believe that this project is a very significant step forward both for our renewables group as well as the Lithuania’s renewable energy goals in general.”

Mindaugas Juodis, chief executive of Renerga, said the project “solidifies Renerga as the leading renewables developer in Lithuania”. He added: “We expect to continue to expand our renewables portfolio going forward as has been the case from the very start of Renerga’s history in 1998.”

Patxi Landa, chief sales officer at Nordex, said: “We are very proud to be working with UAB Renerga for the first time, especially on this 264MW large-scale Pagegiai project. We see the supply contract as the starting point of a powerful cooperation between both groups.”
