GOLD SPONSORSHIP 2022
The development, manufacture, project management and servicing of wind turbines in the onshore segment has been the core competence and passion of the Nordex Group and its more than 8,500 employees worldwide for more than 35 years. As one of the world's largest wind turbine manufacturers, the company offers high-yield, cost-efficient wind turbines that enable long-term and economical power generation from wind energy in all geographical and climatic conditions.
The Nordex Group has been active on the Brazilian market since 2013, with its headquarters situated in the commercial capital, São Paulo. Since entering the market, the company has erected turbines with a total installed capacity of 2.3 GW, and has a further 1768 MW currently under construction. The Nordex Group assembles the nacelles and produces concrete towers for its turbines locally at its own factories. The company also utilizes rotor blades manufactured locally within Brazil. This makes it possible to meet local value-creation requirements, which, in turn, offer better financing options for clients.
As the market shifts towards larger rotors with higher towers, the Group offers competitive turbines to their Brazilian customers in the form of the Delta4000 series. This includes the N163/5.X, which features a rotor diameter of 163 meters with a swept area in excess of 20,000m², providing high sales potential and of which the Nordex Group has already sold 1677.7 MW in Brazil alone.
The N163 turbines in the Delta4000 series feature different operating modes, thus offering maximum flexibility within the 5 MW range. Their operation can be optimized in line with various customer-specific requirements, such as annual yield, service life, and noise level requirements. This year, the N163/5.X won the gold medal for “Turbine of the Year” in the category of onshore turbines with a 4.7 MW + rating, awarded by Windpower Monthly.
The Group covers the needs of all customer segments within the global wind market, from large energy suppliers, to SMEs operating power plants. With more than 41 GW of commissioned capacity worldwide, Nordex Group systems deliver sustainable energy throughout more than 80 per cent of the world’s energy market (excluding China).
