Siemens began field testing of its new 154 meter rotor for the 6MW offshore wind turbine in Østerild, Denmark.

The direct-drive wind turbine is equipped with the world’s longest rotor blades, each blade measures 75 meters in length. As early as May 2011, Siemens installed the first prototype of its new 6MW turbine using a 120 meter rotor. It has now been operating successfully for well over a year. The serial version of the 6MW turbine will use the 154 meter rotor. Siemens will soon install two more SWT-6.0 prototypes in the British offshore wind power plant, Gunfleet Sands. This will be the first time that the wind turbine will be tested offshore. Both machines for this project will be equipped with the 120 meter rotor.
