Nordex has installed its first turbine in the 6MW class at a wind project in the Netherlands.

The German OEM launched its N163/6.X machine in September 2021, as the latest upgrade from its Delta4000 series.

“We are pleased that we are right on schedule with the introduction and installation of our turbines in the 6MW-plus class,” chief executive José Luis Blanco said.

“Like its sister model, the N163/5.X, the N163/6.X is designed for moderate and light-wind regions but focusses on selected core markets in Europe.”
