Company Information

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Hamburg, April 12, 2012. Turbine manufacturer Nordex has
again impressed customers with the N117/2400 onshore turbine, receiving a
contract from VenSol Neue Energien GmbH and Honold GmbH Windkraftanlagen for the
delivery of ten turbines for the Zöschingen wind farm. Located in the north-west
of the shire of Dillingen and scheduled for completion by the end of the year,
the planned wind farm project will have an installed capacity of 24 MW, making
it the largest wind farm in Bavaria. The customer commenced work on the project
in mid-March. Nordex expects to be able to place this project on its books as a
firm order in the 3rd quarter of 2012. 

With rotor blades measuring almost 60 metres in length, the N117/2014 is to go
into series production in summer 2012 and is one of the most efficient turbines
for locations characterised by light wind speeds. As the wind farm is located in
a forest, Nordex will be supplying a hub height of 120 metres, thus optimising
the energy yield of the turbines. The ten 2.4 megawatt turbines will be
generating sufficient energy to supply around 15,000 homes - an equivalent to
around one third of power consumption in the entire shire.

"The Zöschingen wind farm is a perfect reference for us for further projects in
Southern Germany. With its large rotor sweep, the N117/2400 is a highly
attractive solution in economic terms for locations in Bavaria and
Baden-Württemberg as well as Hesse and Rhineland-Palatinate," says Lars Bondo
Krogsgaard, the member of Nordex SE´s Management Board responsible for sales,
service and project management. "Our customers have made the right decision in
selecting our onshore turbine."

The wind farm operating company has several hundred limited partners and
cooperative members from the region.
