The German manufacturer PowerWind GmbH presents a new wind energy converter in the 2.5MW class: the PowerWind 90.
The first two prototypes will be erected this year in Germany. Sales of the PowerWind 90 shall begin in April. The mechanical design of the PowerWind 90 is based on the concept of the modular drive train. The rated capacity of the highly efficient PowerWind 90 is 2500 kW. It has a rotor diameter of 90 metres and under IEC type class IIA certification it is ideal for use in locations with medium to high wind speeds. Due to its electric drive train concept with a permanent magnet synchronous generator and a full scale converter, the PowerWind 90 can satisfy the most demanding electrical grid requirements and can be integrated into weaker grids.
