New customer orders project developed in-house with a wide range of
services

Hamburg, 13 July 2015. Nordex SE has received a new order via its Project
Development division in France. The customer is Saméole and the
manufacturer will be installing four Gamma N100/2500 turbines for its
Ondefontaine wind farm. The order includes the delivery of the turbines,
their turnkey installation and long term service for the wind farm. In
addition, Nordex developed the project in close collaboration with its
customer Saméole.
 
Ondefontaine is situated near the north-west coast of France in the
Basse-Normandie region, an area with a moderate amount of forest cover. As
one of the most versatile turbines on the market, with it robust technology
the N100/2500 is ideally suited for this IEC-2 site.
 
Nordex started construction work on the project in June and it is due to be
connected to the grid at the beginning of May 2016. Following
commissioning, the manufacturer will support the wind farm for a period of
ten years on the basis of a Premium service agreement.  The turbines are
able to supply more than 6500 households with green electricity.

As an experienced and specialized manufacturer Nordex has the know-how and
expertise to monitor and implement a wind farm from the first step down to
turnkey installation. A regional partner like Saméole is a good complement
to this. In France Nordex has more than ten years of practice in developing
wind projects and is a respected partner in this area. Being a family
company with strong local presence, Saméole is able to contribute a lot of
knowledge about the region to the project. It is a highly involved
developer of wind power projects and currently runs nine wind farms in
France. As a new customer Saméole is a welcome addition to the Nordex
portfolio.

Due to its flexibility and broad line-up Nordex once again has reached
market leadership in France. 28 percent of all new connected turbines in
the first half of 2015 come from the manufacturer.
