WindEnergy 2014: Siemens low-wind turbine designed for Germany

GERMANY: Siemens' newly launched low-wind turbine has been specifically designed with the German market in mind, Hannes Reuter, head of onshore wind for central and southern Europe, told Windpower TV.

Speaking at the WindEnergy Hamburg trade show, Reuter said that a prototype of the 3MW turbine with a new larger rotor will be installed next year.

"We see markets in Europe as going more towards low wind. [The turbine] is especially made for the German market, but also other markets that have that lower wind... like Poland and southern Europe, such as Italy and France," he said.

"[Low wind] is a competitive market but it's one of the biggest markets. The low-wind market in Europe is 70% of the market."
