The Nordex Group sales performance in the first quarter of 2022 was slightly down from one year earlier.
It recorded orders for 229 turbines with a total capacity of 1,165MW in the first three months of the year, compared with 1,247MW in the same period last year.
The German turbine manufacturer stated that its Delta4000 series – a platform of turbines with power ratings of 4MW and above – accounted for most sales (91% of capacity). The platform accounted for 73% of order intake in the same period in 2021.
In the first quarter, ten European countries accounted for 89% of total order intake with Finland, Germany and Croatia its largest markets.
The Latin American region accounted for the 11% remainder.
Nordex now claims more than 39GW of installed wind capacity in over 40 markets.
In a sustainability report and strategy, published on 12 April, Nordex stated that it aims to reduce the carbon footprint of its blades by 25% by 2025 – though it is unclear what the baseline is for this target. It aims to do this partly by increasing the nominal output power of the turbine, as in the Delta4000/6.X version launched last year. By 2032 it also intends to produce fully recyclable blades.
