The turbine manufacturer banked a slim net profit of EUR 5.3 million in the first three quarters, following a loss of EUR 15.6 million a year before.
This came on the back of a 47% leap in sales to EUR 1.1 billion, with the company pointing to strong growth in its core European and South Africa markets.
Overall, production was up 64% to 1GW, with the volume of new installations climbing by 61% to 924MW.
Nordex said that "disproportionately low" staff costs also played apart in the swing back into profit, with a small fall in the number of employees worldwide.
After upping its sales and margin guidance in August, the company opted to hold them at EUR 1.3 – 1.4 billion and 2.5 – 3.5% respectively. But it did extend its order intake projections.
Speaking about the results, Nordex CEO Jürgen Zeschky said:"As we are even more confident about our order intake, we are now looking for a higher figure of EUR 1.4 - 1.5 billion. At the same time, we confirm our expectation of being able to achieve our medium-term goal in 2015."
Over the first nine months, the company saw its orders climb 85% to EUR 1.2 billion. There were positive signs in the Americas, with the region accounting for 12% of orders, compared with just 6% of sales.
And the company is also investing more, with capital spending coming in at EUR 45.7 million, an increase of 28% on the previous comparable period.
