The Nordex Group was given an order by RWE at the end of March to supply and install eleven turbines from the Delta4000 series for two projects totaling 61.8 MW in Lower Saxony, Germany.
Seven N149/5.X turbines and one N133/4800 machine are to be provided for the 44.7-MW Lesse wind ranch. Three N149/5.X turbines will be installed at the 17.1 MW Barbecke wind farm.
On February 1, 2023, RWE won contracts for both projects in auctions for onshore wind.
Repowering projects are taking place at both Peine and Salzgitter wind farms. In each, eleven much more powerful turbine models will take the place of 17 older models. Generally, this will make it conceivable to twofold the past result of the breeze ranches from 30.6 MW to 61.8 MW while diminishing the quantity of turbines.
“We are pleased to be able to support RWE in the future with our technology in the Lessee and Barbecke wind farms as they move forward with their goal of producing more electricity from renewable energy,” says Felipe Villalon Waldburg-Zeil, Chief Deals District Focal of the Nordex Gathering. He also adds: “Repowering is a case of less is more. The electricity generated by older wind farms can be significantly increased with fewer turbines thanks to efficient modern turbine technology. In Germany, 103 turbines with 423 MW were installed in place of 246 turbines with 266 MW in 2022. In the future, Germany will place a greater emphasis on repowering for onshore wind power. Very nearly 6,000 more seasoned turbines have been in operation for more than 20 years.”
About the Nordex Group
In 2022, the company generated revenues of EUR 5.7 billion and installed approximately 44 GW of wind energy capacity in over 40 markets. At the moment, the company has approximately 9,000. There are factories in Germany, Spain, Brazil, India, Mexico, the United States, and Germany that make up the joint manufacturing capacity. The item portfolio is centred around coastal turbines in the 4 to 6.X MW class, which are tailor-made for the market necessities of nations with restricted space and districts with restricted network limit.
