In the third quarter of 2022, the Nordex Group received orders for 227 wind turbines with a total rated power of 1,441 megawatts (MW), compared to 389 wind turbines with 1,829 MW in the third quarter of the previous year. Therefore, the average selling price (ASP) in euros per megawatt of production increased significantly to EUR 0.90 million/MW (Q3/2021: EUR 0.69 million/MW). Overall, the Nordex Group generated an order intake (excluding services business) of 4,424 MW in the first nine months (9M/2021: 4,610 MW) and was therefore in the range of the previous year.
Nordex received orders from eleven countries. The largest individual markets include Brazil, Germany, Finland, Poland and Spain.
“We recorded a solid order intake in the third quarter and this in a challenging environment. In this context, the demand for our products, especially our turbine type N163/5.X, has proven to be quite strong in our established markets in Europe and Latin America despite the increase in turbine prices”, says José Luis Blanco, CEO of Nordex Group.
The Group has installed more than 41 GW of wind power capacity in more than 40 markets and generated revenues of approximately €5.4 billion in 2021. The company currently employs more than 9,000 people. The manufacturing network includes plants in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States, India and Mexico. The product range focuses on onshore turbines mainly in the 4 to 6,X-MW class, designed to meet the market requirements of countries with limited expansion areas and regions with limited grid capacity.
