Senvion has successfully completed the installation of the first 3.6M140 EBC (Eco Blade Control) turbine prototype at the Windtestfeld Nord near Husum, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany, for 4testwind.
The Senvion 3.6M140 EBC is one of Senvion’s biggest onshore turbines designed for moderate and strong wind speeds.
“Senvion is committed to reducing the levelized cost of energy,” said Jürgen Geissinger, CEO at Senvion. “With this new turbine, we have combined core product developments to create a machine that is targeted towards optimal energy efficiency. The combination of the 140 meter rotor diameter and the upgrade to 3.6 megawatts allows additional output at the same site. Even with the larger 68.5 meter rotor blades, the 3.6M140 EBC can be installed in the same amount of time as a smaller turbine, ensuring an effective solution for our customers.”
