Company Information/Order intake

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Nordex´s Scandinavian business is continuing to grow. The
wind turbine manufacturer has now signed a contract with  Midtfjellet Vindkraft,
which is owned by utility Østfold Energi, local utility Fitjar Kraftlag and the
independent power producer (IPP) Vardar, for the delivery and installation of 21
N90/2500 wind turbines. The contract also includes a five-year premium service
agreement with an option for renewal by up to further ten years. 

The "Midtfjellet" wind farm is being built on the Norwegian island of Stord.
Work on installing the 52.5 MW project is to commence in summer 2012, with
completion scheduled for 2013. At the site off the Norwegian Atlantic coast,
climatic conditions are relatively mild thanks to the influence of the Gulf
Stream, meaning that winter temperatures rarely drop below -10 °C. Heavy
turbulence on the hilly and sparsely vegetated Midtfjellet plateau and good wind
conditions with speeds averaging 8.8 m/s call for very robust and proven
strong-wind turbines. Certified for wind class IEC 1, the N90/2500 turbine
satisfies these requirements, promising an optimum yield. The 21 turbines will
be able to generate over 170,000 MWh of clean electricity per year. 

Says Ole Vidar Lunde, Managing Director of Midtfjellet Vindkraft: "Awarding
Nordex as our turbine supplier is an important milestone for the `Midtfjellet´
project. From all manufacturers in the competition Nordex had the best offer,
and we are looking forward to close cooperation." 
"Midtfjellet is an ideal reference project for Nordex in the Norwegian market.
The new joint certificate system with Sweden is expected to be implemented in
January 2012 and could give the market a real boost", comments Lars Bondo
Krogsgaard, Chief Sales Officer of Nordex SE.
