Nordex Group wins order in USA for 240 MW
- First order in the US for N155/4.X Delta4000 turbines
- The Nordex Group now also offers this turbine type with an increased rating of more than 5 MW: the N155/5.X
© Nordex SEHamburg (renewablepress) - The Nordex Group has won an order for a 240 MW wind farm in Texas, USA to be installed in 2021. The project will be supplied with 50 N155/4.X turbines of the Delta4000 series and will operate with a rated power of 4.8 MW per wind turbine.
The project and customer are undisclosed.
With a 155 meter rotor diameter, the N155/4.X turbines are ideally suited to the site conditions of the project which enables the customer to achieve a low cost of energy.
"We are pleased to once again deliver Delta4000 turbines to the USA. The wind farm will be the 10th Nordex Group project in South Texas. This brings our installed volume in this region to almost 1.9 gigawatts," says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.
The turbine N155/4.X, a variant of the Delta4000 series, is especially suitable for regions with lower turbulence and medium wind speeds. It is also suited to sites which are not subject to strict regulatory requirements for sound emissions. This applies to locations in large parts of the United States, Latin America, South Africa and Spain.
In addition to the N155/4.X, the Nordex Group now also offers the new rotor as an N155/5.X in the 5MW segment. The N155/5.X leverages already developed components of the current 5.X series – the N149/5.X and the N163/5.X - to boost annual energy production per wind turbine. This variant improves competitiveness in certain wind conditions or in situations where fewer wind turbines on a grid-constrained project result in a better overall cost of energy.
