It could be many things, unfortunately and without experiencing the problem first hand or being able to do some basic diagnostic tests its hard to say. Your car uses a fan clutch that locks up when the gel in the hub senses heat, when it locks up it cools the coolant in the radiator, as the radiator cools down the gel contracts and allows the fan blades to disengage. If the fan clutch fails to disengage it makes a strong noise as it is working all the time. As I say could be anything get it checked in case it is something serious.
