Nordex announced that in the third quarter of 2019 its customers ordered 436 wind turbines with a total output of 1,700 megawatts (Q3 2018: 974 MW) for wind power projects in 14 countries. Europe accounts for 60 percent of orders from July to September, the USA for 28 percent and Latin America for 12 percent. At 49 percent, the latest generation wind turbine types – the Delta4000 platform – made up almost half of the order volume in the third quarter.
Patxi Landa, Chief Sales Officer (CSO) of the Nordex Group, commented: “We continue to see strong demand for our wind turbine systems in Europe and overseas, with the new Delta4000 series recording particularly great interest.”
In addition to the wind farm projects already announced separately, the Nordex Group received major orders from Sweden, the USA, Brazil, Mexico and the UK in September. Overall, order intake (excluding the services business) in the first nine months of 2019 thus rose to 4.7 gigawatts (9M 2018: 3.1 GW).
The Group has installed more than 25 GW of wind power capacity in over 40 markets and generated sales of around EUR 2.5 billion in 2018. The company currently has more than 6,000 employees. The Group’s manufacturing network includes factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the USA, India, Argentina and Mexico. The product portfolio is focused on onshore turbines in the 2.4 to 5.X MW class which are designed to meet the market requirements of countries with limited available space and regions with limited grid capacity.
