ENTERING THE 6MW+ ClASS

MAXIMIZED POWER. EXTENDED LIFETIME.

The latest development of the bestselling and proven Delta4000 series masters a broad range of the 6MW+ class. Levering more than 35 years of experience in connecting proven wind technology with innovative engineering, the Nordex Group has now developed the N163/6.X, which is based on the N149/4.0-4.5 launched in 2017. This was the first turbine worldwide that introduced flexible rating as part of its core design philosophy and operation strategy.
We have incorporated our experience gathered from developing and testing the existing six variants of the Delta4000 series in the 4MW+ and 5MW+ class. As all turbines of the Delta4000 series, the N163/6.X covers a wide range of power modes, providing the flexibility to optimize a customer’s project-specific AEP investment criteria as well as rating and sound requirements. The N163/6.X comes with a design lifetime of 25 years, which can be extended to up to 35 years. The turbine’s high flexibility offers opportunities to optimize the revenues in line with PPA structures and merchant price profiles.

PROVEN TECHNOLOGY

The N149/X prototypes were installed in 2018, meaning the main warranted performance figures, such as the power curve and most relevant sound power modes, have already been confirmed by measurements from certified third parties.

CONNECTING PROVEN TECHNOLOGY WITH INNOVATIVE ENGINEERING

For the Delta4000 product series, we took over the Delta
Generation’s fundamental design and transferred it to the 4MW to 6MW+ classes.

Depending on the investment criteria of the customer’s business case, the wind farm can be optimized in terms of AEP, rating, lifetime and sound requirements. In addition, this flexibility offers opportunities to optimize the revenues in line with PPA structures and merchant price profiles.

1. OPTIMIZED POWER TRANSFER
2. LARGER ROTOR DIMENSIONS
3. REDUCED SERVICE EFFORTS
4. MAINTAINED ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
5. RELIABLE DRIVETRAIN CONCEPT
6. GRID COMPATIBILITY GUARANTEED
