The Nordex Group
Nordex and Acciona Windpower have joined their businesses, creating one of the leading
companies in the wind power industry. The group offers reliable and high efficient wind turbines for nearly all geographical regions across the globe.
The merger in South Africa has translated into a fully integrated organization of more than 60 people, capturing both companies’ proven experience together with a larger wind turbine portfolio, including Nordex and Acciona Windpower wind turbines.
Nordex and Acciona Windpower combined have 473 MW in operation and 111 MW in construction under South Africa’s REIPPPP. A very promising future is envisaged by bringing together Nordex’ highly qualified and experienced construction team with Acciona Windpower’s highly competitive AW3000 platform and Nordex’ new 3,6MW Delta generation wind turbines.
The company’s main competitive advantages relies on the use of locally manufactured concrete towers for its high performing turbines, along with full Engineering, Procurement and Constructions (EPC) capabilities sitting in the Cape Town office.
The group has installed more than 21 GW worldwide and has offices and subsidiaries in more than 25 countries around the world with a total global headcount of over 4,800 employees.
