German wind turbine maker Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) said today its order intake grew to 1,836 MW in the second quarter of 2022 from 1,534 MW a year earlier with the strongest demand coming from Europe.
The manufacturer received orders for 346 machines with the share of Delta4000 wind turbines rising to 93% in the three months through June from 89% a year ago.
Customers from Europe ordered 58% of the total volume and Germany, Poland and Spain were the strongest individual markets for the group. Orders from Latin America accounted for 31% of the total. In North America, Nordex landed a contract to supply about 200 MW of turbines which represents 11% of the group's order intake.
About 65% of the orders in terms of capacity are for turbines with an installed nominal capacity of over 5 MW.
In the first six months, the manufacturer bagged firm orders with a total capacity of 3,002 MW, up from 2,782 MW a year earlier.
Commenting on the performance, Nordex's chief executive Jose Luis Blanco said: "With an order intake of around 3 GW in the first half of the year, we are starting the second half of the year on a stronger footing”.
Nordex will publish its first-half report on August 11.
