THE NORDEX GROUP PORTFOLIO
REDUCING ELECTRICITY GENERATION COSTS SUSTAINABLY
With the N149/4.0–4.5, the Nordex Group was the first company to launch a turbine platform with a flexible rating as part of its core design philosophy and operation strategy. This design approach, combined with a variety of operating modes, enables the Delta4000 turbine to adapt to the grid operator’s individual requirements, local wind conditions and noise constraints.
This also means it’s possible to optimise the overall yield of a wind farm by means of the different maximum output of individual turbines, thus always exploiting the full potential of each turbine position within each single wind farm.
Like its predecessor generation, the turbines of the Delta4000 series meet the grid requirements of international markets, in addition to providing grid stabilizing system services.
REDUCED SERVICE EFFORTS
The technical concept of the Delta4000 series minimises service requirements over the entire service life of the turbine. Each component was rigorously designed to ensure lower maintenance effort. Additionally, this product series can be maintained with an mobile crane solution.

THE DELTA4000 SERIES
With the Delta4000 platform, the Nordex Group relies on tried-and-tested series-production technology. We took the Delta Generation’s fundamental design and transferred it over to the 4 and 5 megawatt classes, with the help of performance-enhancing concept adaptations. At the same time, we kept an eye on electricity generation costs, which we are consequently reducing.

Our main target: to cut the cost of energy
With the Delta Generation, Nordex Group customers benefit from the know-how we have gathered in the multimegawatt range over many years. Mature technical solutions have proven their worth a thousands times over.
With the development of the Delta turbine, we met our main target – to cut the cost of energy, by designing turbines which deliver much higher yields from any given site.
The economic efficiency is achieved by larger rotors and higher hub hights for each wind class, as well as raised rated output.
These turbines make installation in locations with complex topography, for example, wooded areas, possible.
In spite of the considerable increase in output, the sound power levels remain low for each wind class.
The Delta Generation is designed so that Service operations can be conducted rapidly and safely, this reducing ongoing operational costs.

The AW3000 platform
The proven bestseller for international markets
The AW3000 is based on the experience of operating thousands of megawatts of windturbines worldwide in all types of conditions. With more than 9260.325 MW contracted, the AW3000 platform is one of the Nordex Group´s bestsellers. This success is due to a focus on cost of energy and product innovation which optimizes the customer´s business case.
Originaly developed by Acciona Windpower, the turbine is designed from an owner´s perspective. Therefore it provides features such as two main shaft bearings, which reduce the axial load on the gear box, access to the inside of the hub from the nacelle,
and a wider nacelle for easier servicing. The AW3000 is a horizontal axis wind turbine, with three blades, variable speed, rated power of up to 3465 kW, rated voltage of 12 kV and is available for electricity generation in frequencies of 50 or 60 Hz.
The technology provides variable speed options with independed hyraulic pitch control for each blade, to minimize loads and capture maximum energy. The optimal calculation and design of all components, is aimed at maximum durability.
