Nordex to invest heavily in rotor blade capabilities


Nordex SE has announced it will invest EURO 50 million in series production of modern, large-dimensioned rotor blades.

This investment will initially involve the expansion and modernization of its own plant in Rostock, Germany.

The greater dimensions of the products and tools necessitate modifications to the existing production halls. In addition, an entirely new hall for rotor blade finishing will be built. The resultant physical separation of basic production and finishing removes the need for complex production steps in cabins and facilitates quality assurance.

Nordex plans to implement its blade strategy between 2014 and 2016.
