Subtitle: Increase in new capacity installed to 970 megawatts (MW)

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex installed a total of 428
new wind power systems around the world in 2011, an increase of a good 13
percent over the previous year (2010: 378 turbines). This growth was dominated
by multi-megawatt turbines, which accounted for 77 percent. Accordingly, the
average capacity per turbine remained stable at 2.3 MW. All told, the new
capacity installed by Nordex in 2011 came to around 970 MW (2010: 889 MW).

At 72 percent, Europe was Nordex´s most important regional market, with around
15 percent of turbine capacity installed in America and a further 13 percent in
Asia. Within Europe, Turkey was the most important single market with new
capacity of 170 MW. 

At the same time, Nordex increased its capacity in its domestic German market by
eleven percent. "We were unable to fully achieve our targets in Germany due to
project postponements. However, I expect greater growth in 2012. This year, we
will be benefiting in Germany from our amply filled order books and the projects
postponed in 2011," says Nordex CSO Lars Bondo Krogsgaard.

The greater number of turbines assembled in 2011 does not have any effect on the
sales forecast for that fiscal year. Nordex will be publishing its consolidated
financial statements for 2011 in March.
