Wind Energy Nordex U.S. Appoints Dany St-Pierre VP Sales

Nordex USA, Inc. announced today the appointment of Dany St-Pierre as Vice President Sales. A respected leader in the wind turbines industry, with recent experience as Director Sales and Tendering for ALSTOM Power Inc. and before that as the Sales Director for Siemens Wind Power Americas, St-Pierre will direct Nordex’ sales efforts in the key North American wind farm markets.

“We are very pleased that Dany will be heading this important activity for us,” said Ralf Sigrist, President and CEO of Nordex USA. “Her past accomplishments and drive fit very well with the Nordex style. And her industry experience will help take our unique value proposition of technical reliability and customer focus to wind developers nationwide.”

The opening of the company’s nacelle assembly plant in Jonesboro, Arkansas in October and recently announced orders for turbines produced there, provide a firm foundation for heightened activity in 2011. Nordex’ recent introduction of the new N117/2400, an extension of its highly successful N80/N90/N100 2.5MW product line, positions it particularly well as it provides a technology solution for increasing the wind power potential of American sites with lower wind speeds.

“I’m thrilled to be taking on this exciting role with Nordex,” commented St-Pierre. “With the excellent quality of its products and recent orders, there is great momentum. Nordex is brimming with growth potential.”

Nordex is one of the few wind turbine producers in the world with more than 25 years of experience, now operating in 19 countries and employing over 2,500 people – including 187 and growing in the US. There are currently more than 4,200 Nordex wind turbines rotating in 34 countries with a total rated output of more than 6,500 Megawatts. The company’s global headquarters is located in Hamburg, Germany, with US headquarters in Chicago.
