Nordex saw strong demand in the second quarter. Including a US wind farm of around 200 MW, and the total capacity amounted to 1,836 MW (Q2 2021: 1,534 MW).
Firm order intake for wind turbines in the Projects segment (excluding the services business) thus reaches a volume of 3,002 MW in the first half of 2022 (1H 2021: 2,782 MW). The share of high-margin, efficient Delta4000 turbines rose to 93 percent in the quarter (Q2/2021: 89 percent).
Between April and June 2022, customers ordered a total of 346 wind turbines for projects in fifteen countries. Of the total order volume in the second quarter, Europe accounted for approximately 58 percent, Latin America approximately 31 percent, and North America 11 percent. The strongest individual markets in Europe were Germany, Poland and Spain, with respect to Latin America, high-volume orders came from Colombia and in North America, one order from the US.
With a total of 205 turbines and a combined capacity of almost 1,200 MW, 65 percent of new firm orders are for turbine models with more than 5 MW of nominal installed capacity. This also includes two orders from Germany for the N163/6.X, which is the latest turbine model from the Nordex Group and was first installed in May.
“In the second quarter we benefited again from our strong market position in Europe. However, we also saw high demand for our Delta4000 series outside of Europe and achieved an order intake of around 780 MW here. Orders from Colombia and an order from the US made a decisive contribution here, which I am very pleased with and underlines our global orientation. With an order intake of around 3 GW in the first half of the year, we are starting the second half of the year on a stronger footing”, says José Luis Blanco, CEO of the Nordex Group.
