The SWT-3.15-142 will be available with tower configurations of up to 165 meters and 69 meter rotor blades. The turbine uses the same nacelle as other direct drive models like the SWT-3.6-130 including major components like the hub, generator, cooling- and electrical systems. Commissioning work will be finished with the turbine being fully operational by the end of March. The focus of the testing program of the prototype is on blade and performance evaluation.
