Subtitle: •	Potential for 120 MW wind farm in 2013
•	Project planned for 48 Nordex N100/2500 wind turbines 

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Way Wind LLC has entered into a joint venture with Nordex
USA, Inc. for the co-development and later construction of a wind farm in Wayne
County, Nebraska. 
The project was initiated in 2008 when Way Wind began securing land rights and
performing wind studies. The company sought a partnership with Nordex to advance
the project and increase the chances of success. The partnership has also
allowed the project´s planned size to expand from 99 MW to 120 MW. "Once we had
confirmed the wind resource, we knew that we would benefit by joining forces
with the professionals at Nordex," commented Wes Slaymaker, one of the partners.
"We identified the Nordex N100/2500 as an ideal fit for the site. It has a long
operating history and unbeatable track record." 
Nordex entered the joint venture, drawn by the combination of excellent wind,
available transmission lines and welcoming landowners and local community.  The
partnership has now moved forward with additional wind studies and will soon
begin environmental and other surveys to support an upcoming application for
approval for the project from the Nebraska Power Review Board.
"Nordex assists wind project developers from an early stage with both technical
expertise and financing," explained Joseph Fonio, Vice President of Project
Development for Nordex. "Our experience in strategic partnering and our
resources improve the potential of promising projects like Way Wind."
"We know it´s important to support our customers," said Ralf Sigrist, President
and CEO of Nordex USA, Inc. "Nordex has added value to developers in Europe
through such partnerships for 10 years, and we are happy to expand our offering
to our US customers."
In addition to temporary construction jobs, a wind farm would eventually create
several long-term jobs. The community has been very welcoming of the proposed
wind farm. "Such a project would be a big economic boost to a small community,"
notes Dan Jaeger, a resident of Wayne County. "Any time you can create jobs,
it´s a great thing. Farming is booming now, but one day that will come to an
end. If you can have some stable income from a wind farm, it´s a real help."
The project is planned to use 48 of the Nordex N100/2500 turbines which the
company would supply from its recently completed production facility in
Jonesboro, Arkansas. This 2.5 MW wind turbine is a utility scale product known
for its high yields. Part of the company´s Gamma Generation, it benefits from 11
years of operating history, proven reliability and more than 1,500 machines
placed on the grid worldwide. 
Nordex has both completed and current installations in several states, including
Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Maryland, Iowa, Idaho and Colorado. The
Arkansas facility will fill all future orders, shipping turbines to wind farms
around the country. For more information, please see
