Nordex, one of the leading turbine manufacturers has more then doubled its volume of sales in Germany. It has installed a combined capacityMeasured in terms of new installed capacity of wind farms for the first half of 2013 of 109MW. Onshore, the company has achieved around an 11% share of the market for the first time.
Nordex says that in general, the German wind power market is continuing to grow this year, expanding by almost 14%. In the future, wind-produced electricity may become even cheaper and as a result Nordex has developed a new generation of turbines offering more efficient electricity production.
Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, a Nordex management board member said:
“It is foreseeable that many of our customers will be developing more areas in coastal regions or at elevated locations, that is why it was important for us to install the first new Delta Generation turbines in Schleswig-Holstein in the first half of 2013, meaning that we can now devote all our attention to sales and marketing.”
The company was founded in 1985 in Give, Denmark and has steadily grown since then. In 1995 Nordex was the first company to mass-produce a 1 MW turbine.
In the last few days Nordex has won a contract to construct the 17.5MW Manfredonia wind farm in Apulia, Italy. They will supply seven N100/2500 turbines at the site with installation set to begin in spring 2014. It will generate about 40GWh of clean energy a year and curb CO2 emissions of some 40,000 tons.
