On 8 September the Nordex Group installed the first 5.7MW N149/5.X turbine in the Genshagener Heide wind farm near Potsdam, Germany. This month the first N149/5.X will start operation on schedule.
Following the installation of the turbine, preparation commences for the measuring and validation programme for the type certification of the N149/5.X. In addition to the power curve, the Nordex Group will be validating the sound power level and grid compatibility of the turbine on the basis of the measurements recorded in the field. This means that for the start of the series production in 2021 the turbine will be fully certified, including the type certificate. The turbine can be operated in different modes in the 5MW range, depending on site requirements and customer needs. A new gearbox is used and the electrical system of the Delta4000 series is scaled up in order to achieve the power output in the 5MW range.
