A utility commissioned the Nordex Group end of 2022 to supply and install ten N149/4.X turbines for a wind farm in North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany. The order also includes the Premium Service for maintenance of the 45 MW wind farm for a period of 20 years.
Commissioning of the first 4.5 MW turbines is scheduled for autumn 2023.
The annual clean electricity production by the wind farm will come to 96,000-megawatt hours. This equates to the annual electricity requirements of more than 38,000 households. At the same time, the N149 turbines avoid the emission of 38,400 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) a year.
The turbines are to be equipped with a shadow flicker module to prevent shadows and will run at a reduced sound level at night. In order to protect bats, a bat module stops the turbines when these animals are active.
The name of the customer and the project are undisclosed.
