The N100/3300 is designed for strong wind speeds (IEC-1) and has a 32 percent greater nominal output compared with its predecessor. Yet, despite this substantial increase in output, sound power levels have remained stable.
The rotor diameter is 10 metres larger compared with its predecessor, resulting in a 23% increase in rotor sweep. This makes the N100/3300 a particularly efficient turbine for strong-wind locations (IEC-1).
With the N100/3300, Nordex customers are able to benefit from our more than 13 years of experience in the multi-megawatt segment.
Greater nominal output - increased yields
With a nominal output of 3.3 MW, the N100/3300 has a 32 percent greater capacity than its predecessor. This contributes to substantially higher yields at strong-wind locations.
Proven rotor blade design - larger rotor
The N100/3300 features the proven design of Nordex’s own NR50 rotor blade. The rotor diameter is 10 metres larger, producing a 23 percent greater rotor sweep.
Taller hub height
The new hub height of 100m for IEC 1 will help to achieve greater yields, allowing forested regions or sites with a complex topography to be utilised. Thus, Nordex offers steel tube towers with a hub height of 75 metres for the N100/3300.
Stable noise emissions
Despite the substantial increase in output, sound power levels have remained stable at 105.5 dB(A). What is more, Nordex offers numerous sound-optimised operating systems for particularly noise-critical locations. Thank to the improved sector-cut-out modes, an optimum yield is still achieved.
Proven drive train concept
The drive train system is based on the proven 3-point bearing structure. The optimised drive train geometry reduces the forces impacting the individual components, thus lowering the strain on the robust rotor bearings.
Economical electrical system
As with the first wind power systems using Nordex’s multi-megawatt platform, the N100/3300 is fitted with a double-fed asynchronous generator and frequency converter. This system is characterised by superior reliability and economic efficiency.
Internally produced control system
Over 2,000 Nordex turbines have already been fitted with Nordex’s own proven Nordex Control™ system, which controls, regulates and monitors the wind power systems. Permanent and protected access to the turbine and wind farm data on site or remotely is brower-based, interactive and secure. With its modular structure and standardised interfaces, Nordex Control™ can be adjusted flexibly to meet the customer’s SCADA requirements.
Accustomed grid compatibility
The N100/3300 meets the grid requirements of the international markets. The German System Service Ordinance (SDLWindV) is one of the most demanding grid codes in Europe. With their fault ride-through capabilities, the turbines can effortlessly bridge any disruptions in voltage and thus fully comply with all requirements for the system service bonus. What is more, the Nordex Windfarm Management System allows the grid operator to directly control the active and reactive power of the windfarm in the grid.
Extended standard operating conditions
The turbine can be operated at sites with average temperatures in a normal climate range and even at temperatures of as low as -20 degrees Celsius, thus enhancing the annual yield at your site. The proven Nordex Cold Climate Package additionally helps to open up high-yield cold locations. The cold-climate version of the turbine has an extended operating range of temperatures down to -30 degrees Celsius.
A safe and spacious work place
The turbine nacelle provides particularly safe and roomy space to work with extended escape and rescue routes. This helps to lower maintenance-induced downtimes:
- Readily accessible systems for maintenance
- On-board crane for replacing components <=1 ton
- Swift and weather-protected access to the hub thanks to complete encapsulation
