In the third quarter of 2021, Nordex received orders for 389 wind turbines with a total nominal power of 1,829 megawatts (MW), compared to 271 wind turbines with 1,229 MW in the third quarter of the previous year. Delta4000 series turbines accounted for 1,391 MW or 76 percent of these orders (Q3 2020: 86 percent). Overall, the Nordex Group generated an order intake (excluding the services business) of 4,610 MW in the first nine months (9M / 2020: 3,759 MW), which includes a high proportion of around 80 percent for the Delta4000 series .
In this context, the largest single order in the third quarter came from Australia with the MacIntyre project with 162 N163 / 5.X turbines and a nominal power of 923 MW. In addition, Nordex received orders from eleven other European countries. The most important individual markets were Germany, France, Ukraine, Ireland and Poland.
“In addition to the large order from Australia, we again benefit from our strong market position in Europe. Against this background, good demand for our Delta4000 series continually resumes at a high level. Especially for the European markets, we expect this to continue also supported by our recently introduced turbine for the 6 MW + class, the N163 / 6.X ”, says José Luis Blanco, CEO of Nordex Group.
The Group has installed more than 35 GW of wind power capacity in more than 40 markets and generated revenues of approximately € 4.6 billion in 2020. The company currently employs more than 8,500 people. The manufacturing network includes plants in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States, India and Mexico. The product range is focused on onshore turbines mainly in the 4 to 6.X-MW class, designed to meet the market requirements of countries with limited areas of expansion and regions with limited grid capacity.
