The turbine will have a 115-metre rotor and is designed for wind speeds of 7.5 metres per second. Enercon said the turbine is an extension of its E-92 and E-101 low wind turbine range.
The E-115 will be available in hub heights ranging from 92-149 metres and a prototype will be launched next year. Serial production is planned for 2014.
The turbine's nearest competitor is likely to be Nordex's N117/2400 turbine. Nordex has high hopes for the machine, especially in China, following its decision to pull out of offshore.
The turbine will has a 2.3MW capacity and is for locations with IIA wind conditions and is an extension of the E-82, which was launched in 2005.
