At this year's HUSUM WindEnergy, REpower Systems AG will be unveiling its new onshore wind turbine of the 3MW class: the REpower 3.XM.
In Husum the company will be exhibiting a full-scale replica of the nacelle. During the design stage, care was taken to ensure that the product could be transported and assembled using the same equipment as is the case for systems from the 2MW class. The prototype of the REpower 3.XM is to be assembled in a Husum wind farm, Südermarsch, in the coming weeks. Manufacturing will commence shortly in Bremerhaven, where REpower will initially commence serial production of the offshore turbines REpower 5M and 6M. In the long term, the plan is to build a new factory for the REpower 3.XM in Osterrönfeld, in the Rendsburg-Eckernförde district of Schleswig-Holstein.
