The Nordex Group has laid the first stone in the foundations for the extension to its head office in Hamburg. The new building alone will have a total floor area of around 12,000 square-meters and provide space for up to 600 employees.
The full complex, once complete, will have a total floor space of 26,000 square meters. A good six years ago, the Nordex team decided to build its head office in Hamburg-Langenhorn to place all central functions under a single roof.
“Since then, we have grown sharply and have expanded our head office with the merger with the Spanish company Acciona Windpower,” said Lars Bondo Krogsgaard, CEO of Nordex SE. “But Nordex SE’s Management Board will remain based in Hamburg.”
In the meantime, it has been necessary to relocate individual departments as “Nordex Forum 1” no longer offers sufficient space. Following the completion of the new building in 2018, all employees will be again based in the enlarged “Forum,” where they will be able to work more efficiently.
The Hamburg metropolitan region is the European wind-power capital, having attracted many customers over the years. This also includes the Nordex Group, which moved its head office to the region after going public in 2001 to benefit from the attractive local conditions. The wind-turbine manufacturer’s German production facilities are located in Rostock.
