Nordex AG. has obtained its first order to supply variable-speed 1.5 MW turbines to China. At present Nordex is working on orders for four projects in China with a total of 27 turbines. Nordex has been active in China since the mid-90s. In 1998 the company was the first manufacturer to set up a joint venture for the production of wind turbines. In the past we only produced 600 kW machines in China, the larger ones being exported from Europe. China intends to install around 20,000MW by the year 2020. Any company that wants a slice of this market must be able to offer state-of-the-art machines in the upper power class with a local contribution to value added of 70 per cent.
