Nordex Group receives orders of 888 megawatts in the second quarter of 2020
Hamburg, 16 July 2020. The Nordex Group was able to obtain numerous firm orders in the second quarter of 2020 despite the difficult circumstances created by the coronavirus pandemic. From April to June, customers ordered 217 wind turbines for projects with a combined output of 888.0 megawatts (MW) (Q2 2019: 2,003.3 MW). The intake of firm orders in the Projects segment (excluding the service business) reached a volume of 2,531.9 MW in the first half of 2020 (H1 2019: 3,038.4 MW).
Europe accounted for 83 percent of the order intake in the second quarter of 2020, with major projects in Spain and Ireland contributing to this share. Further orders were placed in Brazil (Latin America region: 17 percent). New business is clearly dominated by the current Delta4000 series of turbines: In the second quarter of 2020, around 65 percent of the orders were attributable to the various types of turbines on this platform; in the first half of 2020 the share was 79 percent overall.
José Luis Blanco, CEO of the Nordex Group, commented: “The global economy continues to be severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic – as are we, our customers and suppliers, of course. It is therefore all the more gratifying that our customers are consistently moving ahead with their projects and preparing for the growing global demand for renewable energy. As a result, we expect to see strong demand for our turbines and services in the second half of the year as well.”
