Subtitle: Existing wind farm to be repowered and extended / local service
station planned

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Turbine manufacturer Nordex has been awarded four related
contracts under which it will be revamping the "Kreekraksluis" wind farm by
autumn 2013. The project has been planned by four companies, all of which have
opted in favour of the Nordex N100/2500. The customers are the two Dutch
utilities DELTA NV and Eneco NV as well as the private operators Winvast BV and
Scheldewind BV. 

With an installed capacity of 72.5 MW, the project entails a total of 29
turbines. Part of the project involves repowering, i.e. dismantling and
modernising, 26 older 500 kW turbines which DELTA has been operating in the
Reimerswaal community since 1996. By enlarging the capacity by around 60 MW, the
operators want to make a key contribution to "greener" electricity supplies with
as little as possible interference with the landscape. All told, the
"Kreekraksluis" wind farm is to achieve an annual yield of around 210 GWh,
sufficient to provide up to 55,000 Dutch homes with clean electricity. 

The wind farm is being installed along the "Schelde-Rijnverbinding" canal south
of Bergen op Zoom. Nordex will also build up a permanent service station at the
site to manage the turbines. The purchase contracts also include premium service
package for a period of 15 years. As well as this, an extension of the project
for an additional three turbines of the same model is planned. Once the old
turbines have been dismantled, the new Nordex systems are to be installed from
April 2013.

"This project is a good example of how wind power capacity can be raised without
any appreciable increase in the number of turbines. This is a guiding model for
other developed European markets to follow and offers great potential for the
future," explains Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, Chief Customer Officer at Nordex SE. 

Three of the four orders are received already in December 2011. The remaining
six turbines are booked as order intake in March.
