Nordex widening range of turbines for medium and light-wind regions

05 Apr 2017 | Hamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group is widening its range of efficient solutions for medium and light-wind locations with the addition of two new models. The N131/3900 is an enhanced version of the N131/3600 from the Generation Delta range. With the N131/3900, Nordex is raising the nominal output of its most powerful light-wind turbine by 8 percent, thus enabling yield gains of between one and four percent to be achieved depending on the location. Despite the increased output, acoustic emissions could be kept at low106.2 decibels by using serrations at the rear edges of the blade. Moreover, noise-optimised operation modes are available for the turbine, meaning that it can also... read more...
