Nordex (Hamburg, Germany) reports that over the last few weeks, demand for its turbines for light wind locations has maintaned growth at an unabated rate. Thanks to recent orders, Nordex has over 1,000 MW of projects for its N117 2.4 MW turbines installed or under construction. The company says this shows demand for highly efficient wind power systems for locations with light wind speeds has continued steadily since introduction of the N117 in 2011.

In Germany alone, Nordex received new orders of 132 MW for the N117/2400 in 1Q 2014. “We are thrilled to be able to continue the success that we achieved in Germany last year," says Management Board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard. "After doubling our market share in 2013, we are now headed for a double-digit figure this year.”

According to studies conducted by independent wind power experts, Nordex was the company with the greatest gains in market share in the onshore segment in Europe in 2013. Today, it again numbers amongst the world’s ten largest manufacturers in the sector.
