Norderstedt (euro adhoc) - Hamburg, Karlsruhe, April 20, 2009. EnBW Energie Baden-Württemberg AG and Nordex AG plan to work together in wind farm development projects in Europe in the future. The two companies have forged a partnership for the joint development of wind power projects and for extending capacities of electricity generation by wind in the coming years. The partnership focuses on the turbines N80, N90 and N100 (nominal output of 2,500 KW), of which Nordex has to date produced over 1,000 units.

"The background to this partnership is EnBW´s declared aim to almost double the share of renewable energies in its production portfolio to at least 20 percent by 2020. To this end, EnBW will be boosting its wind power capacity significantly", says Dr. Werner Götz, general manager of EnBW Renewables GmbH.

"We are very pleased that our European-wide sales activities have also resulted in a partnership being forged with a utility. The contract testifies to EnBW´s confidence in the good quality of our multi-megawatt turbines," says Carsten Pedersen, COO Sales and Marketing at Nordex AG.
