Nordex has joined the growing group of major wind turbine manufacturers offering a 6MW-rated model.

The German OEM has added the N163/6.X turbine to its product portfolio, which it says is able to produce an up to 7% higher annual energy yield thanks to its much higher rated output compared to its sister model in the Delta4000 series, the N163/5X.

Both are designed for moderate and light-wind regions in European core markets.

Nordex in 2017 unveiled the Delta4000 series as a modular platform that can be upgraded with relatively small technological adaptations.
