- Manufacturer will deliver 65 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines to Texas

Hamburg, 18 September 2020. The Nordex Group has received a 312 MW order in the USA. For a wind farm in Texas, the manufacturer will supply 65 N149/4.0-4.5 turbines in the 4.8 MW operating mode. Installation is scheduled to start in May 2021 and the wind farm will be connected to the grid later the same year.

The project and customer are undisclosed.

"This order underscores again the growing interest of our US customers in the powerful turbines of the Delta4000 series. With regards to the N149/4.0-4.5 turbines with a 4.8 MW rated capacity, the Nordex Group is now delivering and installing 265 units, amounting meanwhile to 1,272 MW, of this model alone in North America. These turbines exceed the average nominal capacity of last year's installed onshore turbines by more than 2 MW in the USA," says Patxi Landa, CSO of the Nordex Group.

According to association figures, the average nominal capacity of newly installed onshore wind turbines in North America last year was around 2.55 MW, and not a single turbine with 4 MW or more was installed. Also in the first half 2020 the vast majority of turbines installed are rated between 2 MW to less than 3 MW.

According to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA), however, the volume of planned projects with turbines with 4 MW or more increased to 5,079 MW in the USA as of mid-2020, reflecting a trend towards more projects using powerful machines in the near future.

The Nordex Group - a profile
The Group has installed more than 29 GW of wind energy capacity in over 40 markets and in 2019 generated revenues of EUR 3.3 billion. The company currently employs a workforce of more than 7,900. The joint manufacturing capacity includes factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, the United States, India, Argentina and Mexico. The product portfolio is focused on onshore turbines in the 2.4 to 5.X MW class, which are tailor-made for the market requirements of countries with limited space and regions with limited grid capacity.
