Senvion Signs Contract for its 3.4M140 with a 140- Meter Rotor
Hamburg: Senvion, a leading global manufacturer of wind turbines, has signed a conditional contract for the first Senvion 3.4M140 wind turbine. This turbine will be the third prototype that Senvion is planning with e-wyn GmbH & Co. KG for the site and is likely to enter operation in summer 2017. The installation is planned for the Janneby site.
The Senvion 3.4M140 is equipped with a sound-optimized blade profile and a new pitch control system to reduce turbine load. Serial production for the Senvion 3.4M140 will start towards the end of 2017 in hub heights of 110 and 130 meters. Jürgen Geissinger, CEO of Senvion, says: "Innovation is indispensable in ensuring a successful future for wind energy. While lower-wind sites benefit from wind energy thanks to the further development of the turbines and their enhanced efficiency, the demand for trend-setting technologies is all the greater. Senvion 3.4M140's load-reducing pitch control system ensures a cost-efficient design. The further development of our turbines is thus making a major contribution to reducing power generation costs - and thereby to the competitiveness of wind energy."
Hendrik Böschen, Managing Director at Senvion Deutschland, says: "This type of turbine is especially efficient, for Germany in particular. The wind strengths that we see at many sites throughout Germany are a perfect match for the 3.4M140's power range." Thanks to its larger rotor compared with previous models, this type of turbine is particularly suited to low-wind sites.
Senvion had presented the 3.4M140 turbine at HUSUM Wind in September 2015. The optimized blade profile with integrated serrations also reduces the sound power level of the wind turbines.
Senvion is a leading global manufacturer of onshore and offshore wind turbines. The company develops, produces and markets wind turbines for almost any location - with rated outputs of 2 MW to 6.15 MW and rotor diameters of 82 metres to 152 metres.
