Nordex lands major order from Acciona Energia

Nordex/Acciona has been selected as the supplier to almost half of this spring's big auction in Mexico which was otherwise not a positive auction for wind power.

German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex/Acciona has secured a solid order for 168 MW. The reason to mention the company's often left-out Spanish last name, acquired in the merger where Nordex took over Acciona Wind Power last year, is mainly because it was Acciona's former parent company, Spain's Acciona Energia, that placed the order.

No less than 56 of Acciona's type AW125/3000 turbines have been ordered for the project. And there is nothing reprehensible about only Acciona's turbines being ordered, as the project is located in Mexico and a key aspect in Nordex's takeover of the Spanish turbine manufacturer was precisely that Acciona's turbines would be used in growth markets, while Nordex's own would primarily go to the more mature markets, mainly in Northern Europe.
