At WindEnergy Hamburg 2014 (September 23rd to 26th) Nordex SE will present the Delta Generation turbines N100/3300, N117/3000 and N131/3000. Special highlight will be the 64.4-meter long rotor blade of the light wind turbine N131/3000 – one of the largest rotor blades for onshore turbines – which will be presented as an exhibit to the public for the first time.

On the yard of the Hamburg Messe, next to the TV Tower, visitors can also convince themselves of the performance capability of the second generation of rotor blade adapters by the TII group and gain first-hand wind energy and logistic know-how. During regular demonstrations at the trade fair, the giant N131/3000 rotor blade will be moved upward to an angle of 70 degrees.

Thanks to the adapter, the large-dimensioned N131/3000 rotor blades can be transported along narrow curves and past obstacles. This allows the rotor blade to be transported in particular rough terrains. Collisions with obstacles such as trees or buildings can be avoided. Thus, the position of the rotor blade can be adjusted to the road with no loss of time, even on hillsides or serpentine roads. A wind sensor warns when the configurable wind speed is exceeded.

The new rotor blade adapter can be installed and operated on platform trailer combinations as well as self-propelled modules. Thanks to the quick-release plate, a flexible transport of various rotor blades and thus a high efficiency level is ensured.

The N131/3000 turbine is designed for locations with light wind speeds. With a nominal output of 3.0 MW, its capacity is 25 percent greater than its predecessor’s. Thanks to the design optimization of the rotor blade, the sound power level could be reduced to 104.5 dB (A). The N131/3000 will be installed for the first time in the fourth quarter of 2014. Serial delivery of the system will start in 2015.
