The Nordex Group has received an order for more than 200 MW in Canada, supplying 36 N155/5.X turbines for an unnamed wind farm that is expected to reach full commercial operation in 2024.
The wind farm is being built in Saskatchewan. In the winter months, temperatures there can go down to -30 degrees Celsius. The turbines will therefore be supplied in the cold climate version, meaning that they can be operated at such low temperatures.
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. It capitalizes on the modular platform concept of the Delta4000 by integrating an upgraded drivetrain and electrical system to facilitate a higher power rating.
The Nordex Group has installed more than 41 GW of wind energy capacity in over 40 markets. The joint manufacturing capacity includes factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States, India and Mexico. The product portfolio is focused on onshore turbines in the 4 to 6.X MW class.
