Contracts/New Products

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Hamburg, 5 February 2013. Just one day after the public
presentation of its Generation Delta wind power systems, Nordex received its
first contract for the delivery and installation of a wind farm complete with
Generation Delta turbines from Raahen Tuulienergia Oy in Finland. At the EWEA
2013 in Vienna, Nordex signed a contract with a joint venture forged by local
grid operator Raahen Energia Oy and Bridgehead Productions Ltd. Oy for two
N117/3000 turbines each with an installed nominal output of 3 MW. The two
pre-ordered turbines are to be produced and installed this year. 

The site is located in the port area of the Northern Finnish town of Raahe and
is characterised by wind speeds of over 8 metres a second. This calls for
turbines able to generate the greatest possible yield in medium wind conditions.
Nordex is assembling one turbine on a 91-metre and the other on a 120-metre
steel tube tower. Thanks to the large rotor sweep of the N117/3000, its nominal
output and the tall towers, the wind farm will achieve an annual yield of around
20 million kWh of clean electricity, equivalent to a capacity factor of 38
percent. As the site experiences periods of extremely low temperatures of down
to minus 30 degrees Celsius, Nordex will be supplying cold-climate versions of
the turbine. In addition, the sound power produced by the turbines will not
exceed 106 dB. 

"This contract underscores the great confidence which our customers have in our
reliable technology and in the new higher yields which we have achieved in
strong and medium-wind locations with Generation Delta," says Nordex Management
Board member Lars Bondo Krogsgaard. 

With these wind power turbines, grid operator Raahen Energia is establishing its
own power production capacity. Bridgehead Productions Ltd Oy is owned by Jari
Sillanpää, a singer and artist known throughout Scandinavia.

Heikki Jäälinoja, CEO of Raahen Tuulienergia Oy and Raahen Energia Oy: "Nordex'
global record for reliability, efficiency and service has been crucial for our
decision to choose the N117/3000. This turbine is a perfect match for the wind
regime at the Raahe harbor and we are very happy to be able to use newest
technology to maximise the energy output at the site. Based on our experience of
the professional negotiations we are looking forward to continuing to work
together with Nordex also in future".
