Senvion SE, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Suzlon Group, has erected the prototype of its new 6.2M152.
Located onshore near Langen-Neuenwalde, the wind turbine, owned by EWE Erneuerbare Energien subsidiary EWE AG, is scheduled to be fully commissioned by the end of the year.
With the rotor star 152 meters in diameter, energy yield will be increased by up to 20 per cent at a wind speed of 9.5m/s. The turbine will have a rated power of 6.15 megawatts, enabling it to supply around 4,000 homes with electricity.
CTO of Senvion Russell Stoddart: “With the Senvion 6.2M152, we are setting standards in the cost-effective generation of offshore wind energy. Thanks to the larger rotor diameter compared to the Senvion 6.2M126 (126 metres), the energy yield at wind speeds of 9.5 m/s is increased by up to 20%.”
