The AW140/3000

DEVELOPED ON SUCCESS

The Nordex Group’s AW140 builds on the success of its predecessor with an increase of the rotor size to lower the cost of energy and deliver more AEP per wind turbine.
The AW140 represents the largest swept area product offered in the US market for sub-500 foot applications (on an 82m steel tower). Coupled with a rated power of up to 3,465kW, the AW140 also allows customers to capture economies of scale associated with fewer wind turbines needed for a project, while still delivering a winning capacity factor.
