Subtitle: 60 N90/2500 turbines commissioned in Colorado

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - 14 July 2011. Delivering on the potential that the
American market holds for the wind industry, Nordex USA, Inc. announced
completion of the largest project ever undertaken by Nordex Group. The 60
N90/2500 wind turbines at Cedar Creek 2 are commissioned. The logistical
challenges of preparing and delivering a project of this size are significant.
If the blades and towers for the project were placed end-to-end, they would
stretch for 8 miles (13 km).

The wind farm, 20 miles north of New Raymer in Weld County in northeastern
Colorado, is jointly owned by BP Wind Energy and Sempra Generation. The power
produced by this 150 MW project, enough to supply 45,000 American homes, has
been purchased by Public Service Company of Colorado, an Xcel Energy company,
under a 25-year agreement. 

"We are pleased that BP chose Nordex turbines for Cedar Creek 2, one of the
largest projects in Colorado. Our relationship with BP dates back to 2002 when
Nordex first supplied turbines to one of their refinery sites in the
Netherlands," commented Ralf Sigrist, President and CEO of Nordex USA, Inc. "As
a growing global company it is important for Nordex to build on its connections
with existing customers to continue our expansion in America." 

The site´s strong wind resource made it a perfect location for Nordex´
high-yielding N90/2500 wind turbine with 80 m tower height. Recognized for its
reliability, the machine is a stalwart in the company´s multi-megawatt Gamma
generation - a proven product line with 11 years of operating history and more
than 1,500 turbines on the grid.

Nordex was responsible for the turbine supply and commissioning and will
continue to provide service and maintenance under a 5-year contract. The
mile-high altitude required some special adaptations, including increasing the
turbines´ heat exchanging capacity.

Nordex has both completed and current American installations totaling 500 MW in
several states, including Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Maryland, Iowa,
and Idaho.
