Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, today launches its new products, the 3.7M144 EBC and 3.6M118 NES turbines, at the HUSUM Wind fair in Germany. The turbines are especially well suited for low and high wind sites respectively and are available for sale immediately. Both turbines feature the Senvion Next Electrical System (NES) to meet the grid requirements in all Senvion target markets.
The 3.6M118 features an optimized rotor design for very high yields and is mounted on a steel tower with a standard hub height of 91 meters, with project specific hub heights also available. The 3.7M144 is designed to be one of the quietest systems in its class with its strengths at low wind speeds due to aerodynamically optimized blades and serrations at the blade edges. With a nominal output of 3,700 kilowatts and a larger rotor, the new turbine leads to a yearly energy yield 6.7% higher than its sister models. The Senvion 3.7M144 was first announced as the selected turbine to be used for a 429 MW project in Australia that Senvion signed a Partnership Agreement for in June 2017.
Servet Sert, Chief Technology Officer at Senvion, said: “Senvion is continuing the success story of its configurable and modular 3.XM platform, built on proven technologies addressing customer needs from low to high wind speeds. The launch of our latest technological innovations enables Senvion to accelerate the introduction of new robust and reliable variants while lowering costs which will provide our customers with the lowest LCoE at their specific sites in global markets. The performance and reliability of our 3.7M144 wind turbine convinced our customers even before its official release to the market and we are expecting many more 3.XM platform variants installations around the globe.”
The Next Electrical System (NES) features a gearbox-based concept with an asynchronous generator and a fully rated converter that permits stable grid feed-in and already meets the grid requirements in the various markets for 2017 ahead of time.
