Nordex achieves order intake of 7.4 GW of wind power in 2023

Nordex increased its order intake for 2023 by 16 percent to a total of 7.4 gigawatts (GW) with 1,270 wind turbines (previous year: 6.3 GW with 1,235 wind turbines).

Order entry in the fourth quarter of 2023
The fourth quarter represented 420 wind turbines (Q4 2022: 386) with a total power of 2.5 GW (Q4 2022: 1.9 GW). This is an increase of almost 30 percent. The average sales price in euros per megawatt of capacity (ASP) was 0.84 million euros/MW (fourth quarter of 2022: 0.89 million euros/MW).

Orders in the last quarter of 2023 (in MW) were distributed as follows: 92 percent, and therefore the largest part, was attributable to Europe and 8 percent to the “Rest of the world” region. The largest individual markets of the twelve countries were Germany, Sweden and Spain.

Order entry for the entire year 2023
In total, the Nordex Group received orders from 23 countries in 2023 with an ASP of €0.84 million/MW (2022: €0.84 million/MW). With 19 countries, Europe accounted for 86 percent of total orders. The largest individual European markets were Germany, Türkiye, Spain and Sweden. The Latin American region, including Brazil and Chile, accounted for 8 percent of order volume. The North America region accounted for 4 percent of orders with Canada and the “Rest of World” region accounted for 2 percent with South Africa.

“As expected, we received a large number of orders towards the end of the year. I am very pleased that with almost 2.5 GW in the fourth quarter we were able to achieve another increase compared to the already good third quarter. Our product portfolio is proving to be competitive with stable prices. The large number of small projects with high performance has become evident, especially in Germany,” says José Luis Blanco, general director of the Nordex group.

The Group has installed more than 44 GW of wind energy capacity in more than 40 markets and in 2022 generated revenues of €5.7 billion. The company currently has a staff of approx. 9,000. Joint manufacturing capacity includes factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States, India and Mexico. The product portfolio focuses on onshore turbines in the 4 to 6.X MW class, which are tailored to the market requirements of countries with limited space and regions with limited grid capacity.
