Nordex says that over the last few weeks, demand for its wind turbines for light-wind locations has grown at an unabated rate. Thanks to recent orders, Nordex is exceeding 1 GW in installations and projects under construction using its N117/2400 machines.
In Germany alone, the company says it has received new orders totaling 132 MW for the N117/2400 in the first quarter, including from such customers as wpd group, PNE Wind AG and BOREAS Energie GmbH.
With the vending of six N117/3000 wind turbines, sale of the Generation Delta has also gotten off to a good start in the domestic market this year, the company adds. Project developer Denker & Wulf has ordered four of these turbines, which are specifically designed for moderate-wind conditions, for the Sehestedt wind farm in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein.
"We are thrilled to be able to continue the success that we achieved in Germany last year. After doubling our market share in 2013, we are now headed for a double-digit figure this year. And with the N117/3000, we are also very well positioned for IEC-2-locations," says management board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.
