Wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group recorded an order intake of 1.035GW in the first three months of the year, helped by strong demand in Latin America and its European home market.

That compares to orders of 1GW in the first quarter of 2018.

"We continue to see strong demand for our wind turbines,” chief executive José Luis Blanco said.

“Particular interest is being triggered by the Delta4000 series, which we managed to sell for the first time outside Europe, specifically in Australia and Argentina, in the first quarter."
