Hamburg, 27 January 2016. In 2015, the Nordex Group outdid its previous
installation record in Germany. Bucking the trend in the sector, the
manufacturer increased the number of wind turbine installations to 437
megawatts (2014: 412 MW). This means the company improved its market share
from 8.7 to almost 12 percent. In international terms too, Nordex stepped
up its output to around 1,700 MW (2014: 1,490 MW). According to information
provided by the relevant associations, in 2015, newly installed capacity in
the onshore wind segment in Germany stood at a good 3,730 MW.

In some areas, Nordex even lead the field; a fact which can be attributed
in particular to the strong range of products the manufacturer offers for
light-wind regions. In Bavaria, for example, the fifth-largest wind market
in Germany, Nordex achieved a share of some 50 percent. There the
manufacturer connected 80 N117/2400 turbines to the grid. With an
above-average specific rating of 223 W/m² (average 2015: 326 W/m²) the
N117/2400 generates a very good yield even at IEC-3 sites, and has been one
of the top-selling Nordex turbines for a number of years now.

At the end of the year, the company launched the N131/3300, an even further
optimised light-wind turbine, which follows in the tradition of the
N117/2400 and represents a consistent continuation of this technical
development. Nordex installed the first turbine of this type in
Brandenburg, where last year the manufacturer also achieved a good market
position with a share of almost 20 percent.

In spite of the expected flattening of demand in Germany, Nordex projects
further growth for its sales in the domestic market. "Our order backlog has
once again increased dramatically in recent months. For 2016, we therefore
expect a significant increase of installations," says Siegbert Pump, Head
of Sales Nordex Germany.
