The Nordex Group started production of the latest model in the Delta4000 range, the N149/4.0-4.5 wind turbine, the German manufacturer announced Monday.
According to the company's website, the N149/4.0-4.5 yields up to 28 percent more energy compared to the N131/3600 turbine, making it Nordex' highest yielding onshore turbine for low- to medium-wind regions. The Delta4000 series also includes the N133/4.8, which is suitable for strong-wind sites.
"The first N149/4.0-4.5 turbines being manufactured in Europe in continuous flow production are now leaving the production line in Rostock, Germany, for orders already in excess of 700 megawatts (MW)," the company said in a press release.
According to the statement, the Delta4000 series makes it possible to develop different turbine types for all wind classes without changing the external dimensions of the nacelle.
"Apart from offering identical transport requirements for all variants in the series, this is also a major advantage when it comes to adapting continuous flow production," the company said.
The Nordex Group has installed more than 25 gigawatts of wind energy capacity in over 40 markets so far and in 2018, generated revenues of around €2.5 billion.
