Nordex Generation Delta grows up to exceed 4MW

The N149/4.0-4.5 first Delta 4000 model is to be presented at the Husum Wind 2017 in Germany on the 12th of Septemberfor low to medium wind speeds.

According to Nordex’s head of product strategy Paris Lappas, a prototype is expected to come out in mid July, followed by several pre-series wind turbines and series production ramp up in 2019.

These are some of the benefits resulting from building these type of turbines:

  • The N149/4.0-4.5 rotor-swept area in 4.0MW and 4.5MW power mode offer specific power ratings of 229W/m2 and 258W/m2, respectively.
  • This model stands out against increasing competition in its capability to meet a wide range of site-specific requirements with a single hardware model.
  • It is also designed to outlast the regular turbines for a 20-year operating lifetime, which can be extended to 25 years, depending on local turbine or site conditions and their associated loads spectrum.
  • In developing the N149/4.0-4.5, Nordex creates multiple synergies between the Nordex and Acciona Windpower platforms, which will allow them to use a common supplier-base strategy, which commenced with selecting a single gearbox manufacturer for the N149/4.0-4.5.
