Nordex has received the first order for the N117/3600 from WIND-consult Measuring Company for a project with the new turbine for IEC-2 sites. In November the first N117/3600 is to start operation in Bargeshagen, near Rostock, Germany.
With a wind speed of 7.1 m/s at hub height the site offers good conditions for measuring the IEC-2 turbine. In addition to checking the power curve, the Nordex Group will have the sound power level and grid compatibility of the turbine checked and analysed by the measuring institute WIND-Consult on the basis of the measurements recorded in Bargeshagen. This means that for the start of the series in summer 2017 the turbine will be fully certified, including the type certificate. The turbine has already passed the type test for tower heights of 91 metre and 106 metre. The same applies for the N131/3600, the manufacturer's new light-wind turbine, with the 106 metre tubular steel tower. Nordex is already able to install both models.
