The Nordex Group has signed a joint venture contract for the local production of megawatt-class wind turbines in China. The company’s partners are the regional utility Ningxia Electric Power Group (40%) and the Ningxia Tianjing Electric Energy Development Group (10%), which operates power stations and is engaged in the construction sector.
Under the turbine producer’s operative management, Nordex Wind Power Equipment Manufacturing Co. Ltd. will be assembling wind turbines with a capacity of 1.5MW. The joint venture has already received its first major order of 200MW to be constructed until 2009. The partners will be completing the first 26 turbines for China in the coming year. A number of these turbines will still be produced in Germany to provide the engineers from China with a training opportunity at the main factory.
