Hamburg, Germany - The wind turbine manufacturer Nordex received significantly more orders in the third quarter of 2019.

Customers ordered 436 wind turbines with a total output of 1,700 megawatts (MW) (Q3 2018: 974 MW) from the Nordex Group for projects in 14 countries. This represents an increase of 75 percent compared with the same period of the previous year.

Europe accounted for 60 percent of orders from July to September, the USA for 28 percent and Latin America for 12 percent. With a share of 49 percent, the latest generation turbine types - the Delta4000 platform - made up almost half of the order volume in the third quarter, Nordex announced.
