Together with its project partner H2air, Nordex hasofficially opened its largest wind farm in France to date. The 75-megawatt"Seine River Gauche Nord" ("SRN") project is something of a trendsetter forthe French energy market in view of the targets set by the Frenchgovernment for extending the use renewables: by 2020 the share ofrenewables in the power supply is to increase to 23 percent and to as muchas 32 percent by 2030."France is a market with great potential for the future. With our 'SRN'project we have once again demonstrated that we are well able to meet therequirements of this market, in which we have been operating for more than15 years.  Our local partners in France now know that thanks to ourexperience we can also implement even the most complex projects with them,"says Nordex CEO Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.Nordex completely developed "SRN" together with H2air and has set it up ona turnkey basis for the investor KGAL Investment Management. In addition tocivil engineering work and connection to the grid including a privatesubstation, this also involved obtaining approvals, which in this casemeant coordinating with the French military. "SRN" is located in the Northof France in the département of Aube, near the military radar station ofPrunay-Belleville. The project partners have installed the 30 N100/2500turbines in a special version designed so as not to interfere withoperation of the radar station."It was the first time we co-developed a project with Nordex, and thiscollaboration has been very successful. Our skills and expertise werepooled to create a large scale wind farm that ranks as the third in Francein terms of electrical capacity," said H2air Group Management Board memberRoy Mahfouz.The wind farm has been in operation since June. With an annual output of183 gigawatt hours and a capacity factor of around 30 percent, it is ableto supply up to 50,000 households with green electricity. Now that theFrench government has agreed on the aforementioned targets for expansion,the demand in France for projects like "SRN" is very likely to increase.---------------------------------------------------------------------2015-09-16 Dissemination of a Corporate News, transmitted by DGAP - aservice of EQS Group AG.The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.The DGAP Distribution Services include Regulatory Announcements,Financial/Corporate News and Press Releases.Media archive at and    English                                                     Company:     Nordex SE                                                                Erich-Schlesinger-Straße 50                                              18059 Rostock                                                            Germany                                                     Phone:       +49 381 6663 3300                                           Fax:         +49 381 6663 3339                                           E-mail:                                      Internet:                                       ISIN:        DE000A0D6554                                                WKN:         A0D655                                                      Indices:     TecDAX                                                      Listed:      Regulated Market in Frankfurt (Prime Standard); Regulated                Unofficial Market in Berlin, Dusseldorf, Hamburg, Hanover,               Munich, Stuttgart                                             End of News    DGAP News Service  ---------------------------------------------------------------------  394869 2015-09-16
