Nordex Scores with Orders from Europe

Hamburg, Germany - In addition to the recently reported projects from Spain and Scotland, the wind turbine manufacturer Nordex has secured further projects in Europe for more than 195 MW in recent weeks.

Twelve different customers - including project developers, utilities and citizen wind farms - from Belgium, the Netherlands, Greece, France, Germany and Croatia, have ordered N100/3000, N117/3600, N117/3900, N131/3300 and N149/4.0-4.5 turbines. According to Nordex, construction of the projects will start in 2019 and 2020.

Globally, the N149/4.0-4.5 turbine of the latest turbine platform Delta4000 has once again been the "bestseller" in recent weeks. Since the launch of the N149/4.0-4.5, the Nordex Group has received orders for this turbine type amounting to more than 1.95 GW worldwide. Of this, 819 MW were for projects in Europe, 806 MW in North America and 328 MW across Latin America and Australia.

Earlier this week, Nordex reported its first order for the new N133/4.8 strong-wind turbine.

A few weeks ago, Nordex announced, that the Alfanar Group has commissioned the manufacturer to supply and install 22 turbines for two wind farms with a total of 67.2 MW in Spaien. The two wind farms are to be built in the province of Albacete in Castilla-La Mancha, approximately 300 kilometres to the south-east of Madrid.
