Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), the world’s biggest shipbuilder and a leading green energy company announced today that it has developed 5.85 MW Permanent Magnet Synchronous Generator (PMSG) for offshore wind turbines.

The PMSG is the main equipment of wind turbine for converting wind energy to electricity. With improved durability and minimized use of expendables, product life of the generator is extended from 20 to 25 years.
