The Nordex Group in the USA
UNDER CONSTRUCTION IN 2020
IN THE USA
With the average project in the US comprising 200 MW, the Group’s total installed capacity here is 4,057 MW (EOY 2019), with another 453 turbines, amounting to a total 1,787 MW under construction in 2020.
In the current US market, 7.3 percent of all electricity generated comes from wind. Throughout the country as a whole, there is currently a total of 107,443 MW of installed capacity, with just under 60,000 wind turbines across farms in 41 states.
The Nordex Group…
…has been a main player in the wind industry since 1985, and with over 25 subsidiaries, we are close to our customers around the globe. In the US, this dynamic market has been part of our business since 2000.
PRESENCE OF THE NORDEX GROUP
The Nordex Group has been active in the United States of America since 2000, with two main office locations in Chicago, Illinois – which acts as the region’s head office – and West Branch, Iowa. Between these two locations, and those working out in the field, Nordex USA, Inc. has a total of 500 employees.
Compared to many countries, especially those within Europe, the US landscape is vast and varied. Projects located within the Midwest corridor, from Texas to North Dakota, are generally megawatt or grid constrained, whereas those located in the northeast are nearly all land constrained. Until recently, about 78 percent of the projects had been installed using the AW platform through the end of 2019. But with the market finally moving toward larger generators and taller towers, the Delta4000 platform is currently the most competitive turbine, with 960 MW planned for construction in 2020 alone.
