Subtitle: Order for turnkey project and wind farm extension

Norderstedt (euro adhoc) - Hamburg, 26 October 2010. Nordex has obtained the order for the turnkey installation of a wind farm in Turkey. Nordex is building the "Akres" project with 18 N90/2500 machines for Karesi Enerji, a subsidiary of the Turkish transformer manufacturer Best. In addition to this, the wind farm operator Dost Enerji has ordered six N90/2500 turbines for the extension of "Yuntdag".

The "Akres" site is located near the city of Akhisar in the west of Turkey. Thanks to very good wind conditions, the capacity factor stands at around 42 percent. The turbines are able to produce 170 gigawatt hours of clean energy a year and supply some 90,000 Turkish households. The 45 MW wind farm is to be handed over to Karesi Enerji in summer 2011.

"Turnkey projects number among Nordex´s core competences worldwide. Now we can show what our project management is capable of in Turkey, too", says Ayhan Gök, Nordex CEO in Turkey.

The order for the extension of the "Yuntdag" wind farm underlines Dost Enerji´s confidence in Nordex. "Yuntdag" (17 N90/2500s) had marked the start of Nordex´s entry into the Turkish market in 2007. The six machines to be added to the farm in summer 2011 provide an energy yield of 59 gigawatt hours per annum.
