Nordex Q1 2020 Order Intake

The Nordex Group has announced that it has closed the first quarter of 2020 with an order intake of 1.644 GW, increasing the volume of firm orders in a year-on-year comparison by almost 59 percent (Q1 2019: 1.035 GW).

At around 1,292 MW, demand in Europe was particularly high, accounting for almost 79 percent of total order volume. The strongest individual markets were Norway, Great Britain, Turkey and Finland. In Norway alone, the Nordex Group secured a large order for the new N149/5.X turbine with a total volume of 400 MW.

Orders from South America were also positive, amounting to 269 MW in Chile, and 83 MW in Brazil.

“With more than 1.6 gigawatts of order intake in the first quarter, the Nordex Group has once again shown very good and stable order intake; this is the result of our successful product strategy. With 1.4 gigawatts, the Delta4000 series alone accounted for 85 percent of the turbines sold. The high proportion of our new 5MW+ class turbines introduced in 2019, with 93 turbines alone sought in this category, is particularly pleasing,” explains José Luis Blanco, CEO of the Nordex Group.

The Group has installed more than 28 GW of wind power capacity in over 40 markets and generated sales of around EUR 3.3 billion in 2019.

In January, the group had announced that in December 2019 it had received orders totaling 480 MW from diverse countries in Europe. The first batch of orders that were won amounted to 308 MW and the main sales market was Turkey with three projects totalling 105 MW. In addition to orders from Spain and Italy, among others, the Nordex Group secured orders in France (68 MW), Finland (43 MW), Germany (34 MW) and Croatia (32 MW).

More recently, the firm had announced that it had received a large order for 400 MW from Norway using wind turbines in the 5 MW+ class. The firm will supply and install 72 N149/5.X turbines, with 105-meter steel towers, at the “Øyfjellet” wind farm for a German investor.
