Nordex AG has reached a further milestone in its history of more than 20 years. On November 1, 2006, the installed nominal capacity of the 2,868 Nordex turbines situated around the world exceeded the 3GW mark.
It was only in 2003 that Nordex has exceeded the 2,000MW threshold. The driving force over the past few years has been the growing demand for multi-megawatt wind turbines, particularly the N80/N90 (2,300 and 2,500 kW, respectively). Nordex has since assembled 330 of these turbines around the world. This year, more than 80 per cent of the new orders received are for these models. Currently, foreign orders dominate Nordex's new business. Roughly 16 percent of the new projects come from Germany, 3 percent from Asia and the bulk from European countries outside Germany, particularly France, the United Kingdom and Italy.
