Nordex installed 691MW from 267 turbines in Germany last year, compared with 437MW from 176 machines in 2015.
The company’s share of the very competitive market grew from 11.7% in 2015 to 14.9% last year.
Nordex’s success was most pronounced in the low-wind sector, with more than 40% of its turbines installed in the southern states of Bavaria, Baden-Wüttemberg, Rhineland-Palatinate and Saarland.
Further growth in Germany is expected this year. "We will achieve a new installation record thanks to the strong order intake in 2016," said Jörg Hempel, head of Nordex’s German business.
