The lowest LCOE (levelized cost of electricity) over the entire lifetime (25 years) is our main objective and drives the selection of the turbines supplier. 

More than one turbine supplier could be selected (3 different sites). NERO recently submitted the Invitation To Tender (ITT) to 6 different European wind turbine suppliers.

NERO and the selected turbine supplier(s) will discuss the possibility of integration of the Balance of Plant works into a full EPC agreement, depending on the supplier’s capabilities and cost efficiency.

Serving the needs of our end users, a 25 year O&M agreement will be part of the agreement with the turbine supplier (s). The O&M 
agreement will show how modern wind farms control the Operational Expenditure (OPEX) and how to ensure maximum yield.
