GENERATION GAMMA

The N117/2400 of the Gamma Generation combines modern turbine technology with know-how and experience from two decades of operation to meet the requirements of the market. In 2000, Nordex installed the first 2.5 MW series turbine in the world.
With a rotor sweep of 10,715 square meters, the N117/2400 is extremely efficient. The maximum acoustic power level is 102 decibels (with serrations), which means the machine can be installed nearer to residential areas and that a wind farm can be optimally laid out in the available space. With a capacity factor of 40 percent, the N117/2400 is one of the most profitable solutions for low-wind locations.
