Nordex has unveiled a new turbine model in the 6MW range for medium and low-wind sites that it claims boosts energy yields by up to 22%.

The new N175/6.X machine uses the same control system, flexible rated power and large nacelle components as its sister model in the Delta4000 series, the N163/6.X, but has a longer, single-piece rotor blade measuring 85.7 metres.

“The global energy transition cannot succeed without onshore wind power,” Nordex chief executive José Luis Blanco said.
