Nordex Group’s order intake reached nearly 1.1 gigawatt in the second quarter

- Global footprint pays off

Hamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group recorded order intake of 1,089.8 megawatts in the second quarter of 2018 (previous year: 565.5 MW), thus continuing the performance seen at the first quarter of the year when new business exceeded one gigawatt. At the end of the first half of 2018, the Group achieved order intake of a total of around 2.1 gigawatts (H1/2017: 933 MW) in project business (without service).

Performance in the second quarter was particularly underpinned by demand in Brazil, where the Group obtained the largest single order (595 MW) in its history. Together with a further order for 123 MW, Brazil was the largest individual market (718 MW) for the Group. In addition, an order for 147 MW was gained in South Africa. This is also reflected in new business by turbine type, with the AW3000 accounting for roughly 88 percent of order intake.

Profile of the Nordex Group
The Group has installed wind power capacity of more than 23 GW in over 25 markets, generating sales of around EUR 3.1 billion in 2017. It currently has roughly 5,000 employees. The production network comprises plants in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States and India. The product range primarily concentrates on onshore turbines in the 1.5 - 4.8 MW class addressing the requirements of land constrained as well as grid constrained markets.
