The Nordex Group around the World… Turkey!
In Turkey, the Nordex Group is not only the market leader, but, in the last year, has also sold the most turbines in this region – which is precisely the reason why “The Nordex Group around the World” series begins its focus here. The company has been active in the Turkish wind energy market since 2009, and in 2016, Nordex Enerji A.S. Turkey became the market leader and continues to hold this position with a market share of 27 percent and a current installed capacity of over 2,134 MW, as well as 825 MW under construction (January 2020)
The Nordex Group's 1000th Concrete Tower
Recently the Nordex Group has reached a milestone: the 1000th concrete tower for an AW125/3000 machine left the Brazilian factory in Lagoa do Barro do Piauí for the 595 MW “Lagoa dos Barros” wind farm. Due to the current order backlog for turbines in the AW platform, the Nordex Group will manufacture a further 1000 concrete towers by the end of 2020. Around 15 – 20 per cent of the total cost of wind turbines are accounted for by the tower and the related logistics costs for transport to the wind farm. The locally manufactured concrete towers of the Nordex Group are in many cases the most cost-effective solution.

GET TO KNOW THE DELTA4000 SERIES
With the Delta4000 platform, the Nordex Group relies on tried-and-tested series-production technology. We took the Delta Generation’s fundamental design and transferred it over to the 4 and 5 megawatt classes, with the help of performance-enhancing concept adaptations. At the same time, we kept an eye on electricity generation costs which were consequently reducing.
