The turbine will have a 2.3MW capacity and is for locations with IIA wind conditions. The machine is an extension of the E-82, which was launched last year.

Enercon said it redesigned the rotor blades for the E-92 to improve yield and reduce weight. Comparing it to the E-82, the company said the new turbine could produce up to 15% more energy.

It is designed to fit in between the E-82 and the E-101.

Speaking about the turbine, Enercon managing director Hans-Dieter Kettwig said: "The efficient E-92 is yet another attractive option for customers planning projects much further inland. Furthermore, the new turbine is another prime example of the excellent price-performance ratio for generating power with onshore wind energy."

The turbine will be launched at this month's Hanover Fair, which will be covered by Windpower Monthly technical correpondent Eize de Vries.
