Hamburg, xy March 2015. Nordex SE is broadening its market position in
South Africa with the award of a further firmly financed order for a total
of 111 MW. The turn-key project located in the south of the country will
have 37 N117/3000 turbines, making it the first one in South Africa to be
fitted with Generation Delta turbines.

With wind speeds averaging around 8 m/s at the site, the turbines will be
able to produce 424 GWh of clean electricity after being installed.
Accordingly, the wind farm will achieve an above-average capacity factor of
more than 43%.

"The establishment of a local company in 2012 marked an important strategic
step forward in our efforts to position ourselves in the emerging South
African market. In this way, we are able to handle local projects more
swiftly and competently," explains Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, a member of
Nordex SE's Management Board.

In the first round of bidding, Nordex Energy South Africa (Pty) Ltd. had
been awarded the 100 MW "Dorper" project, the 80 MW "Kouga" project and the
134.4 MW "Amakhala" project. Including the project it is announcing today,
Nordex has secured a total of 425.4 MW, equivalent to around 20% of the
total of 1,983 MW allocated in the first three auctions.

In addition to sales, local project management and turbine service, Nordex
Energy South Africa (Pty) Ltd. is also helping people who are at a
disadvantage for cultural / historical or health reasons via the Nordex
Education Trust. This Trust helps them to gain access to education in an
effort to facilitate integration.
