Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Hamburg, 15 December 2010. Nordex USA announced today an order  with  wind

@@start.t2@@farm developer RPM Access for a 41 Megawatt wind farm  in  Delaware  County
      Iowa, just weeks after finalizing a 75 Megawatt order with  EverPower  Wind
      Holdings. Nordex´ new  manufacturing  plant  in  Jonesboro,  Arkansas  will
      produce the turbines. The  contract  includes  a  10-year  premium  service
      contract, as well as the delivery, installation, commissioning and  testing
      of 17 Nordex N100 turbines.


      The Elk Wind Farm is Nordex´ first project with RPM Access, and  represents
      the second order Nordex has received since dedicating its plant in October.
      The project strengthens a growing local  workforce  in  Arkansas  that  has
      reached over 70 new hires already, with the potential of increasing to  700
      over the next four years, in accordance with the market.


      "RPM Access is one of the most experienced and knowledgeable developers  in
      the Midwest," said Ralf Sigrist, President and CEO of Nordex USA.  "And  as
      Nordex is also a pioneer in wind, working together was a  real  meeting  of
      minds. We share the same passions - building new  energy  sources  for  the
      future, bringing cost predictability to a volatile electricity  market  and
      using the best technology available to achieve these goals."


      Elk Wind is a construction-ready project slated for completion  in  October
      2011. RPM Access will own and operate the wind farm, and Central Iowa Power
      Cooperative will purchase the power via a 20-year power purchase agreement.
      Based in West Des Moines, RPM Access has initiated the development  of  six
      operating wind projects in Iowa, representing 370 Megawatts, over the  past
      10 years and has a robust project pipeline.
      "The Nordex model N100 is a near perfect match for the wind regime found at
      the Elk Wind site in North East Iowa," said Stephen  Dryden,  Principle  of
      RPM  Access.  "In  our  diligence,  we  found  Nordex´  global  record  for
      reliability, efficiency and service to be a key  selling  point  that  will
      help us maximize power output. We are also extremely happy to  be  sourcing
      American-made turbines that support American jobs, as well as to bring more
      green energy to the Midwest."


      Iowa is the second largest generator of wind energy in  the  US,  producing
      nearly  20%  of  its  electricity  from  wind  with  over  3,500  Megawatts
      installed. Iowa has been able to significantly reorder its energy portfolio
      by way of forward-thinking public policies, including  a  requirement  that
      utilities  offer  the  opportunity  to  purchase  green  energy  to    their
      customers.


      Nordex has both completed and  planned  installations  in  several  states,
      including Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Maryland,  Colorado  and  now
      Iowa. Currently, Nordex´ largest  US  order  to  date  -  150  Megawatts/60
      turbines - is being installed at BP Wind Energy´s Cedar Creek wind farm  in
      Colorado.


      Nordex - a profile
      As a technological leader among  suppliers  of  megawatt  turbines,  Nordex
      benefits particularly  from  the  global  trend  towards  large-scale  wind
      turbines. The product range includes one of the largest series  wind  power
      systems in the world (N80/N90/N100, 2,500 kW)  with  more  1,300  of  these
      turbines having been produced to date. This means that Nordex has a crucial
      edge in terms of experience in operating large turbines compared to most of
      its competitors in the sector. Overall, Nordex has installed  a  more  than
      4,200 turbines with a capacity in excess of 6,000 MW around the world. With
      exports accounting for over 95 percent of its business, Nordex also  has  a
      strong position in  international  high-growth  regions.  The  company  has
      offices and subsidiaries in 18 countries. In total, the Group employs  more
      than 2,400 people worldwide.
