Senvion has completed initial testing for the 6.2 MW offshore wind prototype that has a 152-meter rotor, the largest ever produced by the company.
According to Senvion, the 6.2M152 turbine has been producing power at Langen-Neuenwalde power plant since January.
According to Senvion, the 6.2M152 can increase energy yield by up to 20% at wind speeds of 9.5 m/s. The larger rotor and drivetrain enables customers to generate energy even more cost-efficiently in the marine environment and extend the machine's design life to 25 years.
