Nordex is looking for up to an additional 130 employees for their planned internal production facilities in Rostock for their new and larger rotor blades. The NR 58.5 rotor blade is used with the N117/2400 wind turbine.
With a length of around 58 metres, the rotor blade is longer yet lighter than its predecessor and it is partially made from carbon. This new type of structure means that Nordex can only source the rotor blade from selected suppliers. For this reason, the company had planned from the outset to produce the rotor blade itself from 2013 onwards. Nordex wants to produce an annual volume of up to 400 rotor blades from this series at its Rostock plant. Up to 200 operatives will be assigned to this production line at the end of 2013.
