Transbiaga has installed the first Delta4000 turbine from Nordex. The installation has occurred at the project of Alena, near the city of Los Angeles in Chile. For this proposal, Transbiaga has used their own’s LR1600/2W Liebherr crane, and with their own installation crew, they have erected the N149-4.5MW turbine at 145m steel tower. Transbiaga proves to be at the forefront of new technologies and next-generation turbines.
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 optimize 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. The technical concept of the Delta4000 series minimizes service requirements over the entire service life of the turbine. Each component was rigorously designed to ensure lower maintenance effort, in addition to a mobile crane solution, which the models of this product series provide.
