Nordmark specializes in high-precision machining of large-scale, complex workpieces weighing up to 80 metric tons, which go into products for the offshore industry, maritime sector, and wind energy sector, Among the heavy goods they manufacture are rotor hubs and houses, gear houses, nacelle main foundations, propeller shafts, main shafts, and bearing houses for wind turbines.  And it’s their unique ability “to offer an entire production line based on the highest quality standards, which is specially tailored to offshore wind turbines, from the receipt of the raw parts through the development of tools, to the Europe-wide dispatch of finished and surface-coated machine parts,”[1] which has won it the multi-year supplier agreement with Siemens at the prestigious, and lucrative, Maritime and Offshore Industry Park in Cuxhaven, Germany.  “The new factory will consist of approximately 5,000 square meters productions facilities”[2] and employ up to 35 workers.

According to Offshore Base Cuxhaven website:

Nordmark is investing more than 19 million euros in the construction of a new factory for the processing of steel and metal parts of wind power plants in Cuxhaven as part of the establishment of Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy. Nordmark is the first Danish company to act as a strategic partner with Siemens in Germany.
