Nordex Offers N155/4.X turbine with Concrete Tower Option for US
The Nordex Group is extending its range of Delta4000 turbines for the North American market to include a variant of the N155/4.X turbine on concrete towers for specific sites. Nordex USA CEO Mr John McComas said “Nordex is committed to working along with our clients collaboratively in order to find unique product solutions in order to increase project suitability, investment, and ultimately return. Up to 20 percent of the total costs of a wind turbine is accounted for by the tower. At specific sites, concrete towers can be an option to reduce project costs. We are now also offering our N155/4.X turbine in the Delta4000 series on concrete towers with a hub height of 120 metres for selected sites in the USA, like in Texas.”
The Nordex Group is currently building projects comprising more than 400 MW with N155/4.X turbines on concrete towers in Spain and Mexico. A first project with Nordex turbines on concrete towers in the US is the 209.4 MW “Reloj del Sol wind farm”, owned and operated by EDP Renewables North America, near San Ygnacio in the south of Texas. It comprises 40 AW132/3465 turbines, 17 AW132/3000s and six AW132/3300s, all installed on concrete towers with hub heights of 120 metres.
