Launched in February 2013, the Nordex N117/3000 and N100/3300 Generation Delta turbines now have received all design evaluation certificates in accordance with the international IEC standard (Design Evaluation Conformity Statement, DECS).
As part of type certification, the independent experts at TÜV Nord critically reviewed the design of all of Nordex’s turbine configurations in all tower, climate and frequency versions. As part of the certification process, Nordex worked with key suppliers to test numerous components fitted to the Generation Delta turbines in test stands. This included tests on the generator/transformer and transmission as well as static testing of the rotor blades. In addition, dynamic rotor blade testing, which simulates fatigue loads over a 20-year operating period, has been completed for the N100/3300. Nordex plans to commence series production of Generation Delta at the beginning of 2014.
