October 14 (Renewables Now) - German wind turbine maker Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) increased its order intake more than 48% year-on-year to 389 turbines with a total output of 1,829 MW in the third quarter of 2021, with the Delta4000 series again accounting for the majority of the orders.

In the third quarter of 2020, the Hamburg-based company received orders for 271 wind turbines with 1,229 MW.

Customers ordered turbines of the Delta4000 series for 1,391 MW between July and September 2021 which is 76% of the total order intake in the period, Nordex said on Thursday.

Most of the orders came from Germany, France, Ukraine, Ireland and Poland.

The largest order was for 162 turbines of the N163/5.X with an output of 923 MW for the MacIntyre project in Australia.

In the first nine months, the company's order intake excluding the service business grew more than 22% to 4,610 MW.

Nordex expects the strong demand for the Delta4000 series to continue especially in Europe supported by the recently presented turbine for the 6 MW+ class, the N163/6.X.

The company will publish its third-quarter report on November 15.
