THE NORDEX GROUP IN GERMANY
The Nordex Group in Germany
As of October 2022
MAXIMIZED POWER. EXTENDED LIFETIME.
The latest development of the proven Delta4000 series masters a broad range of the 6MW+ class.
The Nordex Group has been a pioneer in the wind power industry since 1985 and has been present in the German market since the late 1980s. With the registration of the Nordex Germany GmbH, the group is uniting its customer activities in Germany in one company. Sales, project management and technical support service for Nordex wind turbines in Germany are handled by the Nordex Germany GmbH.
Hamburg’s first wind farm still features two N27/250s – the first series production wind turbine in the world − which have been producing green energy for more than 27 years. With more than 5 GW of onshore wind energy capacity in Germany and another 1574 MW under construction, the Nordex Group has made a major contribution to the energy transition. Its in-house production of nacelles and control cabinets in Rostock allow the Nordex Group to handle projects in the German market with increased local value added, short transport routes and therefore with a particularly high degree of sustainability. In its corporate headquarters and the Global Technical Academy in Hamburg, its locations in Rostock and a sales office in Oberhausen, the Nordex Group employs around 3,100 people from around 60 nations in Germany. Nordex Group customers also benefit from the regional service competence and quick response of three regional offices in Paderborn, Leipzig and Würzburg and 37 service points located throughout Germany. About 300 technicians, highly-qualified specialists and staff service and maintain turbines with a combined output in excess of 3.8 GW.
The Nordex Group is well positioned in the German market and succeeded in capturing around 30% of the approved megawatt volume in 2020. This success can be attributed mainly to the Delta4000 series; in 2020, N149/4.X was the wind turbine with the most planning permission granted of all manufacturers in the country. With its Delta4000 platform, the Nordex Group relies on proven technology. Performance-enhancing concept adjustments were made to the basic design of the Delta platform to fit the 4, 5 and 6MW turbines − with the aim to consistently reduce the cost of energy. Following the company’s design and operating strategy, the N149/4.X of the Delta4000 series was the first turbine with flexible rated power worldwide. The Nordex Group has now developed the N163/6.X. We have incorporated our experience gathered from developing and testing the existing six variants of the Delta4000 series in the 4MW+ and 5MW+ class. As all turbines of the Delta4000 series, the N163/6.X covers a wide range of power modes, providing the flexibility to optimize a customer’s project-specific AEP investment criteria as well as rating and sound requirements.

In Germany, the repowering of wind turbines is also gaining in importance. Thanks to technological developments in recent years, older wind turbines are being replaced by new, more powerful turbines without designating more land. This makes repowering an attractive solution for the increase in the power yield of existing wind farms which are already widely accepted by the public.
Nordex Germany GmbH with its more than 400 employees underlines the importance of the German market where, last year, the Nordex Group succeeded in sustainably increasing its market share by doubling the installed power capacity. With its excellent range of turbines, a strong local presence and more than 35 years of experience in the wind power industry, the Nordex Group is ideally positioned to install even more wind turbines in Germany this year and to continue this positive trend.
