In the second quarter of 2017, Nordex received contracts for the execution of a total of 13 projects with a combined capacity of 81MW. These are already approved wind farms for which finance has been finalised and which are eligible for remuneration under German renewable energies legislation (EEG).

The projects will be executed this year for the most part. The delivery contracts signed last quarter are increasingly orders for the latest-generation turbines that have a capacity of more than three megawatts and a rotor diameter of greater than 130 metres. They include the first wind farms to be fitted with a 3.6 megawatt turbine.
