The well-established wind turbine designer W2E Wind to Energy GmbH launched the operation of two prototypes of its 3 MW technology in 2013/2014.
(WK-intern) – The two turbines are located in the wind park Kankel, Germany and are completely measured and certified.
Now the LVRT-measurements according to IEC 61400-21 and the German guideline FGW, part 3 is almost completed. At the end of March the last results will be expected.
In 2011 W2E placed a highlight in the market by developing its new 3 MW turbine. Cooperating with Siemens/Winergy the compact, medium speed gearbox generator unit HybridDrive has been successfully implemented in the 3 MW class.
For our 3 MW customers and the project developers the completion of the grid code measurements is the last milestone to establish the current technology in the wind market.
The 3 MW turbine now satisfy the requirements of the Germanischen Lloyd’s guideline entirely. German and international grid codes will be fulfilled as well.
The design process was supported by the partner Lehrstuhl für Technische Mechanik/Dynamik, University Rostock and by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy on the basis of a decision by the German Bundestag.
