Nordex continues to benefit from its broad global market position. In addition to the recently reported wind farm projects from Spain and Scotland, the manufacturer has secured further wind turbines projects in Europe for more than 195 MW in recent weeks.
Twelve different customers – including project developers, utilities and citizen wind farms – from Belgium, the Netherlands, Greece, France, Germany and Croatia, have ordered N100/3000, N117/3600, N117/3900, N131/3300 and N149/4.0-4.5 wind turbines. Construction of the projects will start in 2019 and 2020.
Globally, the N149/4.0-4.5 wind turbine of the latest turbine platform Delta4000 has once again been the “bestseller” in recent weeks. Since the launch of the N149/4.0-4.5, the Nordex Group has received orders for this wind turbine type amounting to more than 1.95 GW worldwide. Of this, 819 MW were for projects in Europe, 806 MW in North America and 328 MW across Latin America and Australia.
Nordex has installed more than 25 GW of wind energy capacity in over 40 markets and in 2018 generated revenues of around EUR 2.5 billion. The company currently has more than 5,500 employees. The joint manufacturing capacity includes factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States, India, Argentina and Mexico. The product portfolio is focused on onshore turbines in the 2.4 to 5.X MW class, which are tailor-made for the market requirements in countries with limited space and regions with limited grid capacity.
