Today also Nordex with the first figures - see the table.

I guess the most interesting point is the book-to-bill-ratio, because it shows the future. There you see, that Gamesa and Nordex have a book-to-bill-ratio under 1 in moment. Vestas 1,7 - and it could be more due to the projects in North Europe in negotiation.

But the highest book-to-bill-ratio with around 2 has China Ming Yang. So here you can clear see, that the upcoming years will be better than 2014. And with the 2014 figures China Ming Yang is already the best share worldwide. And remember: Offshore windpower and O&M are only in the beginning stage.

I think 20 USD for a share is not too much - now only 2 USD!

The Institutional Ownership on the NASDAQ-Site shows something new:

  • 15 holders increase their positions - 26 decrease. But in the sum around 2 million shares sold and 5 million shares bought!
  • With Newquest Capital Management a new bigger shareholder with over 7 million USD invest.
  • The SEC 13x news shows, that the pre-IPO-Investor ICBC reduce further. Before IPO in 201 this chinese bank hold 8,8 % from the shares, after IPO 7,3 %, end 2013 5,7 %, end 2014 2,59 %. Blenheim Capital Management with optimize entrance in mid 2012 hold still 5,1 %. I wait on the message from the pre-IPO-Investor KAILAI Advisers Ltd. (formerly Clarity China GenPar Ltd.) with 8,33 % end 2013. But don't know exactly the 13x-SEC-rules. I think when KAILAI change nothing in 2014, they don't have to make a ownership-message for 2014.

All in all we can say: More big Asia-based investors realize this tenfolder chance and invest money. Why ICBC reduce - ? - good question.

Today, there is little to see looking off the rugged, western Norwegian coastline except white-capped, storm-grey seas and drifting seabirds. By next spring, however, Chinese manufacturer Ming Yang is on course to have a 6MW turbine spinning in the shallows here that could change the face of offshore wind power. ...

"So far, our 6MW turbine has attracted a lot of attention in the industry from developers [with plans for industrial-scale projects in European waters]," says Zhu. "But for us, our focus remains on the testing phase: we have to make sure it runs well off China and we are very much looking forward to the European market in the next few years."
