Senvion has successfully completed the installation of the first 3.4M140 EBC turbine prototype in Heckelberg for the Notus energy Group. The Senvion 3.4M140 is equipped with a sound-optimised blade profile and a new pitch control system to reduce turbine load.
Senvion presented the 3.4M140 turbine at HUSUM Wind in September 2015. Serial production for the Senvion 3.4M140 with hub heights of 110 and 130 meters will start towards the end of this year. The Senvion 3.4M140 is equipped with the Next Electrical System (NES), which Senvion introduced for its 3.XM series. The gearbox-based concept, which features an asynchronous generator and a fully rated converter, permits stable grid feed-in and satisfies the future grid requirements in a range of markets.
