The Nordex Group: Onshore turbine with largest rotor diameter installed in the Netherlands

Hamburg (renewablepress) - Despite the coronavirus crisis and whilst taking all possible precautionary measures, the Nordex Group installed the first of two N149/4.0-4.5 turbines in the Netherlands at the end of March as part of the Heibloem wind farm, with this turbine boasting the largest onshore rotor diameter in the country. With the dimensions of the 149-metre rotor and an installed rated output of 4.5 MW, the exceptionally high-yielding turbine sets new standards in terms of economic efficiency in the Netherlands.

The customer is Coöperatie Zuidenwind, and the wind farm is being built near Roermond in the Dutch province of Limburg near the Meuse. Here, the average wind speed is 6.8 m/s. With a hub height of 125 metres, the turbines can also use higher air layers to optimally exploit the full potential of the medium wind location, thus generating the highest possible energy yield annually.

The two turbines are scheduled to be commissioned by the end of April. They will then supply around 7,500 Dutch households with clean electricity each year.


The Nordex Group - a profile

The Group has installed more than 28 GW of wind power capacity in over 40 markets and generated sales of around EUR 3.3 billion in 2019. The company currently has more than 6,800 employees. The Group’s manufacturing network includes factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the USA, India, Argentina and Mexico. The product portfolio is focused on onshore turbines in the 2.4 to 5.X MW class which are designed to meet the market requirements of countries with limited available space and regions with limited grid capacity.
