Senvion has completed the installation of the first 3.6M140 EBC (Eco Blade Control) turbine prototype at the Windtestfeld Nord near Husum, in Schleswig-Holstein, for 4testwind GmbH.

The new turbine is equipped with the load-reducing pitch control system Eco Blade Control (EBC) technology which enables optimised load management even in challenging wind conditions. The 3.6M140 EBC also features a newly designed steel tower and a larger rotor diameter of 140 meters. The rotor blades are equipped with the new Rodpack technology which ensures a lighter blade design. At a hub height of 110 meters, the turbine can power up to 3400 households per year and has an extended lifetime of 25 years. Senvion presented the 3.6M140 EBC turbine in September 2016. Serial production for the turbine has already begun with further installations planned for this year.
