USA - Goldman Sachs makes significant investment in Nordic Windpower

The investment will enable Nordic Windpower to become a market and technology leader in the $20 billion global wind energy industry

Nordic Windpower Ltd., a leading manufacturer of two-bladed utility-scale wind turbines, announced today that Goldman Sachs, one of the world’s largest investment banks, has made a significant investment in the company.

The investment marks a major new phase in Nordic’s growth as it prepares to start U.S. production of its innovative and field-proven turbines for utilities, and large and small developers. The new money enables Nordic to fulfill growing demand for low-cost, high-reliability wind turbines at a time when the industry faces persistent supply constraints.

Steve Taber, Nordic Windpower CEO, said, “We are delighted to attract Goldman Sachs, one of the world’s leading wind industry investors, as a key shareholder. The investment will enable Nordic Windpower to become a market and technology leader in the $20 billion global wind energy industry. It provides Nordic with the resources to deliver its turbines as early as 2008 and focus on high-growth markets globally”.
Jim Walker, Nordic Windpower co-founder and president-elect of the American Wind Energy Association said, “Goldman Sachs has helped grow major wind energy companies such as Nordex and Horizon. Its commitment and backing is a great endorsement of Nordic’s technology and potential”.

The terms of the investment were not disclosed.

Nordic was advised by Verte GBS, www.verte-gbs.com, specializing in the environmental sector.
