German wind turbine manufacturer Nordex SE (ETR:NDX1) has received an order to equip a 240-MW wind farm in Texas with turbines from its Delta4000 platform.
The manufacturer will supply 50 units of its N155/4.X machines under its first order in the US for this specific turbine model, it said on Tuesday without disclosing the name of its client.
The equipment will be operated in a 4.8-MW power mode and is planned to be installed next year. The wind turbine maker noted that with a 155-metre rotor diameter, N155/4.X machines are “ideally suited” for the site conditions of the project, specific details about which were not provided.
This will be the German firm’s 10th wind project in South Texas and will lift the group’s installed volume in the region to almost 1.9 GW.
The N155/4.X variant of the Delta4000 series is designed for regions with lower turbulence and medium wind speeds and is suitable for sites with eased requirements for sound emissions, Nordex said. It noted that it now offers this turbine type with an increased rating of over 5 MW with the N155/5.X model.
