Fewer turbines, greater output: Nordex to repower the Altenbruch wind farm

27 Jun 2016 | Hamburg (renewablepress) - Nordex will be replacing 16 legacy N60/1300 wind turbines with nine modern N117/3000 ones for PNE Wind AG by the end of 2016. Located near Cuxhaven in Germany, the Altenbruch I wind farm will be undergoing what in Germany is seen as a business model offering considerable potential for the future: repowering. In 2015, repowering accounted for 18 percent of all new installations in Germany. The Altenbruch project is a good example showing the purpose of repowering. Although the number of turbines installed at the wind farm 18 years ago will drop by almost half, yield is expected to more than double. “In Germany it is important to increase the output of existing... read more...
