Subtitle: ABO Wind ordering 13 N117/2400 turbines on 141-metre towers

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex has been awarded a
contract by project developer ABO Wind for the construction of a further two
wind farms with a total of 13 N117/2400 onshore turbines. Located in the German
regions of Central Hesse and Franconia, the planned farms will be going on grid
this year after the project finance has been finalised. With two wind farms
already under construction and also located in Central Hesse and Franconia, the
project volume being jointly executed by Nordex and ABO Wind will thus rise to
51.2 megawatts this year.

In awarding these contracts, ABO Wind has opted for solutions which Nordex has
specifically developed for regions characterised by lighter winds. The project
comprises eight N100/2500 and 13 N117/2400 turbines, which with rotor blades
measuring almost 60 metres are amongst the most efficient in their class. As
part of the wind farms will be located in forests, hybrid towers with an
above-average height of 141 meters are being used in all projects to optimise
energy yield. 

"Germany is of crucial importance for Nordex as our home market is stable and
continuing to grow. What is more, the fact that our long-standing customer ABO
Wind has opted in favour of the new light wind systems marks a key success,"
says Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, CCO at Nordex SE. Over the past few years, Nordex
has also installed numerous wind farms for ABO Wind in France, Ireland and the
United Kingdom. "We are currently seeing growing interest in additions to wind
power in the southern half of Germany in particular," reports Dr. Jochen Ahn, a
member of ABO Wind AG´s management board. "Wind turbines such as the N100 and
the N117, which also achieve high yields in non-coastal locations, are helping
to spur the success of the new energy policy."
