Nordex, the German turbine manufacturer, has closed the first quarter of 2020 with an order intake of 1.644 GW, representing an increase of firm orders by almost 59 percent.
Europe accounted for 1.292MW, which represents almost 79 percent of the total order volume. Norway, Great Britain, Turkey and Finland have been highlighted as the strongest markets.
South American orders were also positive, with orders amounting to 269 MW in Chile, and 83 MW in Brazil.
José Luis Blanco, CEO of the Nordex Group said:“With more than 1.6 gigawatts of order intake in the first quarter, the Nordex Group has once again shown very good and stable order intake; this is the result of our successful product strategy. With 1.4 gigawatts, the Delta4000 series alone accounted for 85 per cent of the turbines sold. The high proportion of our new 5MW+ class turbines introduced in 2019, with 93 turbines alone sought in this category, is particularly pleasing.”
