Company Information

Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Hamburg / Chicago, 30 January 2013. Nordex USA, Inc.
concluded an agreement with Usinas y Trasmisiones Eléctricas (UTE), Uruguay's
state power company, for the sale of 28 of its N117/2400 wind turbines for the
Juan Pablo Terra wind farm. 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.

The site, on the border with Brazil, is located a few miles from the city of
Artigas, in the north of Uruguay, about 370 miles (600 kilometers) from
Montevideo, the capital city. This will be largest wind farm owned by UTE and
represents the country's commitment to the growth of renewable energy. Delivery
of turbines is slated to begin in February 2014 with project completion in June

The newest addition to Nordex' established multi-megawatt fleet, the N117/2400
is designed specifically for light wind regimes, maximizing the power produced
at sites where wind resources were previously considered unsuitable for wind
energy. The turbines, on 91 meter towers, are particularly well-suited to the
site. Each of the 2.4 MW turbines will be capable of powering about 3,500
Uruguayan homes.

"We are honored that UTE has chosen Nordex and our technology for this important
project. Uruguay's first wind turbine was a Nordex N27/250 installed in 2000 for
UTE as customer and still running successfully today," noted Ralf Sigrist,
President and Chief Executive Officer of Nordex USA. "Our company has always
been recognized for its engineering expertise and leadership and this is
exemplified by the changes in size, productivity and competitiveness that we
have achieved over the past decade."

Gonzalo Casaravilla, President of UTE commented, "We are pleased to have reached
this agreement with Nordex, a company known worldwide for its quality,
capabilities and its dedication to wind energy. Their commitment to a renewable
energy future matches our own."
