            Senvion Technology

            The 4.XM series features a well-proven modular and evolutionary technology concept based on the Senvion 3.XM series. The smart and robust design results in a highly efficient and reliable turbine concept: from the aerodynamically optimized rotor blade, compact and efficient drivetrain, advanced control technology right through to the transformer. This flawless interplay delivers high energy yields while keeping sound emissions low.

            Smart Power Mode

            With our tried-and-tested and modular technology, Smart Power Mode enables the optimization of the wind turbine without component changes. By evaluating the project conditions and adjusting operational parameters, the nominal power can be increased by 300 kW. This maximizes the output from 4.2 MW to 4.5 MW. A combination of both Smart Power Mode and standard operation mode can be implemented to allow the best possible output from each wind farm.
