Nordex Signs Contracts in China

The Nordex Group has announced that it will supply 33 S70/1.5-megawatt (MW) turbines for a subsidiary of the utility, Beijing Energy. The turbines will be part of the Jingneng wind park which will be built in Inner Mongolia. The average wind speed at this location is 8.4 meters per second.

The turbines are set to be delivered in the fourth quarter of this year. Nordex is producing the machines and rotor blades required in its new factories in China, which started operation in 2006 and 2007. Nordex has also signed a frame agreement with Beijing Energy for the supply of a further 66 turbines. This delivery with a volume of 100 MW is scheduled for the summer of 2009. It was agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

“These orders confirm our higher expectations for the Chinese market and once again underline the importance of our factories in this country. Nordex will continue to record strong growth with its offer of German technology made in China,” said Carsten Pedersen, COO Sales and Marketing at Nordex AG.
