Nordex will supply 20 N100/2500 turbines for the Gul Ahmed wind farm, which will be situated in a semi-desert area near the city of Jhimpir and the Arabian Sea.

The company will deliver hot climate versions of the N100/2500 turbines in order to meet the local weather conditions.

Nordex said this version of the N100/2500 allows to secure the largest potential energy yield at the IEC-2 site.

Since 2012, Nordex has installed about150MW of its turbines in Pakistan, equal to about 60% market share.

The current deal marks the fifth 50MW frame contract to become a firm order, Nordex said.

Nordex CEO Lars Bondo Krogsgaard said: "This underlines the dependability of our partners and the confidence placed in us."

Pakistan is planning to commission nine wind power projects with a combined capacity of 479MW by September 2016.

The country's power generation capacity currently stands at 22,000MW. It is expected to generate nearly 50,000MW from wind projects.
