Company Information


Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Hamburg, 21 August 2012. Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex
has been awarded a contract for the delivery and installation of the "Honkajoki"
wind farm by the Finnish Wealth Management company Taaleritehdas. With a
capacity of 21.6 MW, the wind farm comprises nine N117/2400 multi-megawatt
turbines mounted on top of 120-metre high towers. This is the first call-off
under a framework agreement signed as recently as in June for the delivery of up
to 111 turbines.

Nordex will be installing the "Honkajoki" wind farm in South-West Finland, where
mean wind speeds of 7.5 m/s prevail. Thanks to the specific configuration of the
N117 turbines, the wind farm will generate an above-average annual yield of up
to 100 GWh, thus achieving a capacity factor of around 50%. Installation is to
commence in spring 2013.

"The swift progress made in the partnership venture with Taaleritehdas
underscores the professional approach taken by our partner. At the same time,
this is a further key order for our N117 turbine, whose quality we are now also
able to demonstrate in Scandinavia," says Nordex Management Board member Lars
Bondo Krogsgaard.
