German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex Group has confirmed an order for 39 turbines from wind and solar park developer UKA. The technology is expected to provide a total generation capacity of 253MW after installation and commissioning in 2025 in the federal states of Schleswig-Holstein, Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia, Hesse, Saxony-Anhalt and Brandenburg.

Nordex - which confirmed the deal on Wednesday - will also take over servicing of the turbines for 20 years. In total, UKA (Umweltgerechte Kraftanlagen) has ordered 450MW of wind turbines from the company in the last three months for domestic wind projects.

Putting traction into Germany’s transition

Karsten Brüggemann, Vice President Region Central of Nordex Group, welcomed UKA again choosing its technology.

“On the basis of the framework agreement, a trusting and constructive partnership has developed, which we value very much and want to expand further,” he said. “With the new projects, we can once again make a good deal of progress in the energy transition in Germany, together with UKA.”

UKA Managing Partner Gernot Gauglitz praised the relationship as Germany’s energy transition “has noticeably gained momentum”.

“After our success in the February tender for onshore wind, this is further proof that project implementation is increasingly coming back into focus at UKA,” he said.

“UKA will continue to play a central role in Germany’s climate-friendly, affordable and independent electricity supply in the future…Nordex is a strong partner for us in this regard.”

Company growth on wind deployment

Nordex Group has installed about 50GW of wind power capacity in 40-plus markets. It generated consolidated sales of about EUR 6.5 billion in 2023 and currently has more than 10,000 employees.

As a full-service developer, meanwhile, UKA Group plans, builds, operates, and sells wind and photovoltaic (PV) farms, providing sustainable power supplies in Germany, Europe and America.

It is one of the leading project developers for renewable energies domestically, while UKA’s project pipeline in all its markets currently exceeds 19GW. It was not until mid-March that it reported a major success in the Federal Network Agency’s Wind on Land February tender round.

Now, almost 18% (321.1MW) of the awarded projects belong to the UKA Group portfolio.
