Hamburg, 9 March 2016. Nordex' customer steps up the pace in Finland. The
Finnish asset management company Taaleri, formerly named Taaleritehdas, has
now called down the third and so far largest project from the recent frame
contract with Nordex, which is financed from the fund Taaleritehtan
tuulitehdas II. The manufacturer will be installing 13 N131/3000 turbines
for the "Kivivaara" wind farm.  Nordex will be delivering the turbines in
the late summer of this year and guarantees full service on the basis of a
15-year Premium Service contract

"Kivivaara" is located in the north-east of Finland. The region is known
for its forest-covered hills and large quantities of snow and ice. Its wind
speeds offer good conditions for the N131/3000. Nordex will be supplying
all turbines in the 39 MW project with the anti-icing system to prevent ice
formation on the rotor blades and thus reduce turbine outages. In
permafrost conditions the system can increase yields by up to 25 percent.
One of the advantages here is the low energy consumption by the anti-icing
system.

Including the third call-off, Taaleri has already ordered 30 turbines with
a total of 90 MW from the 216 MW frame contract. The remaining three
projects agreed are planned for installation by the end of 2017 at the
latest.
