“Planning the future today”
Hamburg. - At HusumWindenergy, which takes place on September 9 - 13, 2008, Nordex will be highlighting three main aspects under the motto “Planning the future today”. As part of preparations for future projects, trade visitors will have an opportunity of obtaining detailed further information on the low-wind version of Nordex’s 2.5 MW N100 wind turbine, which was unveiled last year. Moreover, Nordex Service will be focusing on efforts to reduce systems down times and to extend the lives of wind turbines by means of preemptive maintenance. As the company’s growth over the next few years will be materially determined by the success with which further qualified staff can be recruited, Nordex’s human resources department will be at the stand throughout the entire duration of the fair. On top of this, it will also have its own stand (4K27) at the “windcareer” job fair taking place on September 13, 2008 in the congress area.
The N100/2500 is a further development of the proven N80/N90 wind turbine family. Nordex has produced over 1,000 of these turbines since 2000. With a rotor blade measuring around 50 meters in length and a diameter of 100 meters, the N100 is particularly designed for low-wind locations with average wind speeds of up to 7.5 m/s. The Nordex fair team will also be available to answer questions concerning finance, the ideal wind sites, optimum wind farm system planning and the latest technological developments in wind power systems.
Preemptive maintenance is less expensive than disruption-triggered repairs. With its three-phase “inspection - analysis - modernization” model, Nordex Service is able to inform its customers of ways for reducing future turbine down times, such as proper maintenance, repairs, periodic inspections, regular checks, ongoing recording of performance data and system modernization.
With 1,850 employees, Nordex is one of the world’s leading producers of wind power systems today. Looking ahead over the next few years, it will be recruiting several thousand new employees around the world to place its own growth on a solid footing. The company currently has over 140 technical and commercial vacancies particularly for graduates with degrees in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, mechatronics, process technology, industrial engineering, construction and economics.
At the same time, however, Nordex attaches key importance to internal training and skills-development. At the company’s own Nordex Academy, employees are trained to become mechatronic specialists or energy facility electricians for Nordex’s technology and wind power system processes. The training program is primarily directed at technical staff in the turbine assembly, rotor blade production and service areas. During “HusumWindenergy”, the company’s human resources department will be providing detailed information on vacancies and the opportunities for career development at an international company with an export ratio of over 90 percent.
