The Nordex Group has received an order to raise the yield of a total of 63 existing wind turbines from its customer ERG in Italy. The operator plans to equip three wind farms with the performance-enhancing Xtended Power technology.
In principle an increase in yield of up to two per cent can be obtained using this product package. This is achieved by a combination of optimised pitch control and a more intelligent turbine control system. The Fossa del Lupo and Amaroni wind farms are situated in the region of Catanzaro and have been in operation for five years. The third project, Vicari, is in Sicily and has been feeding green electricity into the Italian grid for nine years.
