Two new Senvion 3MW+ turbines debuted

GERMANY: Senvion has launched two new turbines for both low- and high-wind sites at the Husum Wind 2017 event.

The 3.7M144 and 3.6M118 are both available for projects and feature Senvion's Next Electrical System (NES) to meet grid requirements in all of the manufacturer’s target markets, it said.

NES features an asynchronous generator and fully-rated convertor to reliably feed in to the grid, Senvion said.

The low-wind 3.7M144 was first announced as the selected turbine for the 429MW Murra Warra project in Australia, for which the manufacturer signed a delivery partnership agreement in June. The site, in Victoria, is due to go online in 2019.

Its 144-metre wide rotor means it will have an annual energy yield 6.7% higher than other Senvion models, the company added.

Senvion’s new 3.6M118, meanwhile, features a rotor design for "very high yields", the manufacturer said.

Although it has a standard hub height of 91 metres, "project-specific hub heights" are also available, Senvion said.

"The performance and reliability of our 3.7M144 wind turbine convinced our customers, even before its official release to the market, and we are expecting many more 3.XM platform variants installations around the globe," said Senvion chief technology officer, Servet Sert.
