The increase came despite an 18% fall in revenues to €499m compared to the same period last year. EBIT was up almost 10% to €34.3m.
Incoming orders rose 29% to 565 MW, and the wind turbine manufacturer set up or installed 299 MW of wind turbine during the period, up 3.4% from the year before.
Total performance for the REpower group is expected to reach €1.5-1.6 billion and the EBIT margin should reach 7.5-8.5% for the full year 2010/2011.
“The Executive Board has confirmed these targets, but would like to emphasise that uncertainty regarding the achievement of its goals has increased significantly due to a growing number of projects postponed by customers,” REpower says.
