Nordex has received the first order for its N131/3000 Generation Delta light-wind turbine. The manufacturer will install eight of the machines for Burgerwindpark Hollich Sellen GmbH & Co. at a 24 MW community wind farm in Germany.
Nordex says it will be setting up the 3 MW turbines on 134-meter hybrid towers to enable the N131/3000 to take maximum advantage of the site. The machines also offer a low noise emission level of 104.5 decibels maximum, the company adds.
Furthermore, Nordex has won a 15-year service contract for the project. The company says final financing for the wind farm is expected to be completed shortly.
"This order shows that there is a high level of confidence in our product," says Nordex Chief Strategy Officer Lars Bondo Krogsgaard. "Although we will not be setting up the first N131/3000 until the end of the year, the Generation Delta technical platform has proved a success. In addition to this, we already have several approvals in accordance with German anti-pollution law for this turbine."
