Company Information

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Hamburg, 28 January 2013. Nordex USA, Inc. and Akuo
Energy announced plans for construction of a new wind farm in the Florida
district of southern Uruguay, about 100 km (65 miles) from the capital city of
Montevideo. The project will feature 21 Nordex N117/2400 2.4 MW wind turbines on
91 meter towers. Nordex, a leading global manufacturer of utility scale wind
turbines, will be responsible for delivery, installation and commissioning and
for ongoing maintenance for a minimum of 10 years under a Premium Service
Contract. This project has already been considered in Nordex' order intake in
December 2012.

The two companies have collaborated in the past on successful projects in
France. Ralf Sigrist, President & CEO of Nordex USA, Inc., commented, "It is
especially rewarding to extend our existing relationship with Akuo to a new
country and a new continent. We are excited by the opportunities that Uruguay
can offer as it fulfills its commitments to a renewable energy future. We know
that our N117/2400, which is specifically designed for high yield in light wind
regimes, will help to maximize the potential. The resulting net capacity factor
for this site confirms how well-suited this turbine is for the prevailing

The electricity produced by the project, enough to power 73,000 homes, will be
deployed by Usinas y Trasmisiones Eléctricas (UTE), Uruguay's state power
company, under a 20-year power purchase agreement with Akuo Energy.

Juan Negro, CEO of Akuo Energy Uruguay noted, "This is an exciting time for
Uruguay. We are happy to play a role as the country moves forward with its plans
to diversify its energy matrix and incorporate wind energy as its primary source
of renewable energy. We know from our past experiences with Nordex that our two
companies together will deliver the quality and performance that UTE and the
people of Uruguay demand. We're pleased to be leading with the introduction of
the Nordex N117/2400 in Latin America."
