Installation of the 3MW turbine at the Köhlbrandhöft site in the port was carried out for customer, Hamburg Wasser, the city's water supplier.

The model was launched early in 2013, and is designed for medium-wind sites. The N117/3000 is claimed to offer on average 31% higher annual energy production compared with the 2.5MW N100/2500.

Nordex has started installing the turbine on a number of projects in Europe after winning several orders, including in Germany, Finland and Turkey.
