Manufacturer installs 140 megawatts in the first half of the year  

Hamburg, 30 July 2015. Birthday greetings from the market: half-way through
its anniversary year Nordex SE has achieved a market share in Germany of
11.8 percent. This means that in terms of installed turbines the
manufacturer is again in the double-digit range in its home market for the
first time since 2001 (just under 12 percent in the year as a whole).

While in general the sector is rather quiet when it comes to installations
compared to 2014, the Hamburg manufacturer has maintained last year's level
in absolute terms. According to the German Machinery and Plant
Manufacturing Association (VDMA), the total wind energy capacity installed
overall in Germany in the first half of 2015 stands at nearly 1,200
megawatts (443 wind turbine generators). Of this 140 megawatts are
accounted for by Nordex turbines.

With a nominal output of 2.4 megawatts, most of the turbines fall below the
average of just under 2.7 megawatts calculated by the VDMA. Nordex has
therefore achieved its large share of 11.8 percent thanks to the number and
spread of installed turbines. In total the manufacturer installed 57
turbines in Germany in the first half of the year. According to the number
of the totally installed turbines Nordex therefore achieved a share of 12.9
percent.

With 51 turbines, the N117/2400, the low-wind machine from the Gamma
series, is still the absolute top seller in the Nordex product portfolio.
One of the largest orders to be implemented is a large-scale product in
Chransdorf, Brandenburg, an IEC-3 site where Nordex setup 20 Gamma turbines
until end of June. To complete the wind farm, Nordex will install four more
N117/2400 on this site.

Nordex celebrated yet premier in Janneby, Schleswig-Holstein, where the
company installed the first N131/3000, the follow-up model to the N117/2400
from its Delta series. The results of measuring tests show that the noise
level of the  N131/300 is sometimes even lower than projected.

Installations in the first half of the year account for a little less than
one third of the volume planned by Nordex for the year as a whole.
