March 19 (Renewables Now) - Germany’s Nordex (ETR:NDX1) on Monday said that orders for its new N149/4.0-4.5 wind turbines have surpassed 700 MW, soon after it kicked off serial production of the Delta4000 platform units.
The German manufacturer started serial production of the machines, part of its Delta4000 range, in the middle of March at Rostock, Germany. Being manufactured in continuous flow, the first such machines have already left the production line.
The Delta4000 series includes the N149/4.0-4.5 turbines, designed for low wind sites, and the N133/4.8 machines for strong sound power levels.
In the future, Nordex will assemble all turbines from the Delta4000 series in a fully flexible sequence together with other turbine models. The manufacturer noted that the specific series enables it to develop different turbine types for all wind classes without changing the external dimensions of the nacelle.
