Nordex supplies new generation of turbines to China - Extension of local production on the way -

Hamburg, August 17, 2005. "Since Peking passed a new law promoting renewable energies in the spring, the demand for wind turbines has increased significantly. Most of the tenders are for large projects and machines in the megawatt class", explains Carsten Pedersen, COO Sales and Marketing at Nordex AG. The company has now obtained its first order to supply variable-speed 1.5 MW turbines. Says Pedersen: "This means that a new generation of turbines will be used that so far we have only installed in Europe." At present Nordex is working on orders for four projects in China with a total of 27 turbines.

Nordex has been active in China since the mid-90s. In 1998 the company was the first manufacturer to set up a joint venture for the production of wind turbines. Says Pedersen: "In the past we only produced 600 kW machines in China, the larger ones being exported from Europe". The Nordex S70/1500 kW now ordered are pitch-controlled turbines with a more complex turbine concept than the smaller stall machines.

Peking intends to install around 20,000 megawatts by the year 2020. Any company that wants a slice of this gigantic cake must be able to offer state-of-the-art machines in the upper power class with a local contribution to value added of 70 per cent. Says Pedersen: "This is why we are currently preparing new structures in the People's Republic. The latest project is just the first step in this direction".

The law on the promotion of renewable energies passed by the National People's Congress comes into effect on 01 January 2006 and regulates the feeding in of electricity from wind farms and other regenerative power plants.
