Third-quarter new orders at the Nordex Group dipped to 271 wind turbines with a combined output of 1.23GW, down from 1.7GW in the same period a year earlier, amid delays caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

Half of all orders came from North America, driven by two major projects in the US, while Europe accounted for 31% in the third quarter – primarily through orders from Germany, the Netherlands, the UK and France.
