Northern Power Systems has launched the next generation of their permanent magnet/direct drive distributed wind turbines.
The 100kW NPS 100C and the 60kW NPS 60C are commercially available for delivery to markets around the world starting in the fourth quarter of 2014. With a new 24.4 meter rotor it provides a larger swept area compared to the outgoing model. This increases the annual energy production (AEP) of the NPS 100C-24 and 60C-24 by up to 15% depending on wind conditions. The new class III 24.4 meter rotor is available on the 100kW and 60kW model. The NPS 100C is alternatively available with a class II 21 meter rotor option.
