Hamburg, 24 February 2015.  The Nordex Group has been awarded the first
contract by STEAG New Energies GmbH for the installation of a wind farm in
France. It will be supplying nine Generation Delta N117/3000 turbines for
the "Onze Muids" project, which STEAG previously acquired from Lower
Saxony-based wind farm developer Volkswind. The contract also includes the
provision of premium service by Nordex France for 15 years. The wind farm
is scheduled to go online in early 2016.

 "Onze Muids" is one of several projects being executed by STEAG New
Energies GmbH in France (Lorraine and Bretagne). The current wind farm is
being built in Picardy in the department of Aisne near Hauteville. With an
average wind speed of 6.9 m/s at a hub height of 91 metres, the expected
annual energy yield comes to around 81 GWh, equivalent to an above-average
capacity factor of more than 34 percent.

"Onze Muids" is Nordex's second joint project with STEAG. In 2013, it had
supplied 18 N117/2400 turbines for the German wind farm "Ullersdorf".

Says Dr. Stephan Nahrath, management spokesman of STEAG New Energies GmbH:
"We are pleased to be able to continue the partnership which we forged with
Nordex in 2013. Nordex is a very experienced supplier in France, something
which gives us the necessary basis for implementing our onshore wind
strategy in France. "

"To date, Nordex France has placed a total of 1,336.5 MW on line and
developed and sold projects of over 500 MW. We are thrilled that STEAG has
decided to use our Generation Delta turbines for its project in France as
this demonstrates the trust that it has in our products and service,", says
Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, Chief Sales Officer at Nordex.
