The company said its net income had risen to €51 million. The company was buoyed up by a 260% and 380% increase in India and Latin America respectively.

Europe (excluding Spain) accounted for 20% orders. China and the US contributed 23% and 14% respectively. Sales rose 10% with wind turbines rising 16.5%.
