Nordex 2019 Wind Turbine Orders Exceed 6.2GW (Int'l, Ind. Report)
Nordex
Date: 2020-01-17
The turbine manufacturing and installation company Nordex Group booked turbine orders totaling 6207MW in 2019, up 31% on the 4754MW in 2018. The German manufacturer secured deals with a combined capacity of 1477MW in the fourth quarter of last year, which was down on the 1679MW in the last three months of 2018. Overall, the Nordex Group received orders to deliver 1,616 wind turbines with a total output of 6,207 MW in 2019, representing a 31 pct increase on the previous year (2018: 4,754 MW).

According to Nordex, high demand from Turkey, Spain, the Netherlands and the market entry in the Ukraine compensated for the continued weakness of the German market. The North American performed similarly well at 1,767 MW (2018: 721 MW) or more than 28 percent to the total order volume. Around 18 pct or 1,122 MW (2018: 1,190 MW) of orders came from Latin America.

Fachagentur-Windenergie (FA Wind), the German onshore wind agency, is reporting onshore wind installations in Germany dropped 87 pct in Q1 of 2019. The agency reported only 41 turbines totaling 134MW went online -- 13 pct of the average first quarter performance for between 2016 and 2018 period.

Thirteen Vestas turbines, 11 Enercon, seven Nordex, six Senvion, three ENO Energy and a single Siemens Gamesa model were spread across seven of the country's 16 states, with 13 turbines in the western state of Rhineland Palatinate alone. Eight turbines were part of repowering projects meaning net capacity growth was lower than 134MW.

Out of 730 turbines that won an allocation in 2017, only 35 have been commissioned, five of them in the first three months of 2019. The permitting situation has slightly improved with 111 turbines (413MW) getting the green light in the first quarter, a third more capacity than the average of the same periods of 2017 and 2018.

German Wind Energy Storage Facility Inaugurated (Int'l, Report)
German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy
Date: 2018-11-12
In Germany, the City of Hamburg reports the commissioning of a wind energy storage facility at the Curslack wind farm in Hamburg-Bergedorf.

Built by Vattenfall in conjunction with the Competence Center for Renewable Energies and Energy Efficiency (CC4E) of the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW) and the Nordex Group, the lithium-ion battery storage facility links five wind turbines with a new battery storage facility connected directly to the wind farm grid.

The storage power plant, which was built as part of the major NEW 4.0 -- Norddeutsche EnergieWende project for northern Germany, is intended to enable practical research into the possibilities for the system integration of renewable energies.

The storage power plant is comprised of 24 batteries featuring the latest BMW technology. These are the same batteries that are also used in electric vehicles. The battery storage unit has an output of 720 kW and a storage capacity of 792 kWh.

The NEW 4.0 project aims to fully convert the northern German states of Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein to green electricity by 2035. The storage power plant is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWii).
