WIND-consult Measuring Company has made the first order for a N117/3600 onshore wind turbine by Nordex (ETR:NDX1) following the model’s introduction in September, the latter announced today.
The German supplier will install the N117/3600 turbine in Bargeshagen, near Rostock, later this month. The measuring institute WIND-Consult will help Nordex check and analyse the power curve, sound power level and grid compatibility of the turbine, which is designed for IEC-2, medium-wind sites.
The new model has already passed the type test for tower heights of 91 metres and 106 metres, and this project will help it get the type certificate so that the series can start in the summer of next year, Nordex said.
The company will also install two units of its N117/2400 model next to the N117/3600 at the Bargeshagen site in mid-2017. It will be servicing all three turbines for a period of 18 years.
