SenseWind set to build 6MW turbine in Scotland using its installation systemSenseWind plans to construct a 6 MW wind turbine in Scotland using its Self-Erecting Nacelle and Service (Sense) installation system. The purpose of the project is to demonstrate the self-installation of their new modular, tripod tower as well as a scaled-up version of their 2 MW turbine installation system.

The 6 MW prototype machine provides the platform to move from development to a commercial Sense installation and service system, and will also serve to refine the logistics, transport, and installation of the new tower design. The tripod tower with its integrated rail system promises cost reductions in manufacture by being fabricated from standard steel pipe widely used in the oil and gas industry. Pipe connectors supplied by Aberdeen-based GMC are used to join the tower sections during installation.

The 6 MW project is scheduled for construction in 2027 at Muirhall Energy’s Tormywheel Wind Farm. The installation will follow the installation of their 2 MW demonstrator planned for the first half of 2025, also at Tormywheel Wind Farm.
