Wind turbine orders at Nordex have surged last year amid strong demand from Europe, as well as North and South America.
The manufacturer’s order intake swelled to 6.2GW in 2019, a 31%-increase from the previous year, boding well for a recovery in the near future of the company that was still loss making in the third quarter of 2019.
“Demand for our wind turbines is very strong around the world. With our new Delta4000 turbines we are enabling profitable projects in all relevant markets,” chief executive José Luis Blanco said, according to Recharge News. “Series production in Rostock [Germany], which started in March 2019, has already been supplemented by production at the Spanish plant in La Vall d’Uixó since December.”
Orders in Europe reached 3.2GW, up from 2.1GW in 2018, and made up around 51% of the overall order volume.
High demand from Turkey, Spain, the Netherlands and the market entry in the Ukraine compensated for the continued weakness of the company’s German home market.
