Senvion's 6M152 model has been installed in Langen-Neuenwalde in Lower Saxony. Installation began in March 2014 and was completed at the start of December. 

It is an upgrade of the company's existing 6.2MW offshore machine but will be fitted with a 152-metre rotor. The previous model had a 126-metre rotor.

The greater blade length means an increase in the swept area of about 50% and, the company claims, a 20% increase in yield at wind speeds of 9.5m/s.

The prototype has already been sold to German developer EWE, which also operates a 5MW Senvion prototype nearby.

Senvion was sold in January by its parent company Suzlon to US-based private equity group Centrebridge Partners for €1 billion.
