Nordex AG is one of the pioneers of the wind industry. Since 1985 the company has been developing high-tech solutions for obtaining low-cost electricity from wind energy. Apart from the manufacture of wind turbines, the range of products and services offered also includes the planning and turnkey erection of complete wind farms as well as service and maintenance.
The Nordex Group markets one of the most extensive product lines in the world for the power class in excess of two megawatts. It has already put over 1,000 turbines of this type (2.3/2.5 megawatts) on grid.
