Hamburg, 14 January 2016. Nordex has obtained a new order for the
construction of a 35 MW wind farm in Ireland. The company will be
installing a total of 12 turbines to Glencarbry wind farm for its customer
John Laing Investments. The site is located close to the village of
Hollyford in County Tipperary. Nordex will install seven N100/3300s and
five N90/2500s wind turbines to Glencarbry.

With an average wind speed of 8 m/s, it is predicted the turbines will
produce 118 gigawatts of electricity a year. Turbine deliveries are due to
commence in October this year. Following installation, Nordex will service
the turbines for a period of 15 years having signed a Premium Service
Contract with John Laing.

Together with Glencarbry and other projects currently under construction,
Nordex will be increasing its installed capacity in Ireland to more than
700 MW. With its substantial potential for wind energy the Emerald Isle is
an important market for the manufacturer, which is one of the leading
suppliers of wind turbine generators there.

"Glencarby is an important investment for John Laing Group and we're
pleased  that for the first time the turbines for one of our projects are
being supplied and maintained by Nordex.  We're looking forward to seeing
the project fully operational in early 2017 and to the prospect of working
together and delivering further projects with Nordex in the future" Ross
McArthur, Managing Director of Renewable Energy for John Laing.

Nord/LB arranged the Finance for this project. "We are very pleased to have
been able to support our client John Laing Group with structuring the
non-recourse debt package for the Glencarby project as well as providing
the financing for a project using Nordex turbine technology in the Irish
market" Heiko Ludwig, Managing Director of Energy Europe for Nord/LB.
