Nordex exceeds 5 GW threshold for wind energy installations in the Nordic countries

With the installation of an N163/5.X turbine at the Kalistanneva wind farm in Finland, the Nordex Group has surpassed the threshold of 5 GW of installed capacity in the Nordic region. A total of 1,234 “Made by Nordex” wind turbines are currently in operation in Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway and produce clean electricity for 2 million homes.
