The Nordex Group has received the IEC Type Certificate, which is valid worldwide, in accordance with the standard IEC 61400-22 for the N149/5.X turbine from TÜV SÜD.
In September 2020 the Nordex Group installed the first N149/5.X in the Genshagener Heide wind farm near Potsdam, Germany. On 28 November 2020 Nordex installed the second turbine of this type at Santow, near Grevesmühlen in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania in Germany as well, with its Anti-Icing System.
TÜV SÜD has been assessing and evaluating the overall concept as well as all the principal components of the N149/5.X turbine. The turbine can be operated both with standard rotor blades and with anti-icing rotor blades for cold regions. Another part of the type certification comprises the evaluation of the manufacture and production of the wind turbine generators.
