Rostock – W2E Wind to Energy GmbH upgrades its 3 MW products by enlarging the rotor and increasing the power.
The use of the Winergy HybridDrive integrated into the compact W2E drive train concept opens the door for an upgrade of the 3 MW section. This will serve a huge spectrum of specific projects.
At noise limited projects the standard turbine W2E-120/3fc will be used. This turbine produces high yields even during noise reduced mode. The standard turbine is designed with a low sound power level and completely measured.
For low wind projects it is a major advantage to use a bigger rotor. The W2E-133/3fc has an extraordinary large swept area utilizing its 133 m rotor diameter. Combined with a nominal power of 3.0 MW, the turbine will earn profitable yield even at low wind speeds.
The turbine W2E-120/3.3fc will earn significant high annual yields especially at steady average wind speeds to higher wind speeds.
Achieving steady wind speeds, the hub height of a turbine is a key attribute. Moreover, the tower material, design and availability have an impact on capturing the steady winds. Hence W2E simulates and investigates using different tower concepts for its current technologies. Additionally these towers should be sustainable and future orientated. Hybrid towers up to 140 m hub heights with combinations of steel and concrete or steel and wood are in W2E’s focus.
W2E, a standing and experienced designer of wind turbines and partner for licenced turbines provides the opportunity with these new developments to place an optimal turbine in different projects.
