Fuhrländer plans 1.25 MW prototype for autumn

Fuhrländer will install the prototype of its 1.25 MW pitch regulated machine with 58 metre rotor blades in the autumn, says the company's Walter Lutz. Fuhrländer's current workhorse is a 1 MW stall controlled model. The company also produces the MD70 1.5 MW turbine under licence from engineering company Pro+Pro, which is now part of competing manufacturer REpower Systems of Hamburg. Fuhrländer is considering developing a 2.5 MW machine, Lutz says. Meanwhile it is due to commission seven MD70 units at the Villa de Bispo 11 site in the Algarve region of Portugal in the summer, in a development adjacent to an existing project of the same name with Enercon machines.
