The onshore wind turbine SWT-3.3-130, with hub heights of 85, 115 and 130 meters, has passed independent type testing and wind projects in Germany can now be planned with the D3 turbine and will be authorised according to the current feed-in tariff.
The type testing comprised a design evaluation of the SWT-3.3-130 according to the DIBt-guidelines by the TÜV Nord. Siemens is using its first close-to-standard prototype installed south of Husum for final trials. Serial production of the wind turbine will be ramped up in spring 2017. With a rated output of 3.3 megawatts and a rotor diameter of 130 meters, Siemens developed the SWT-3.3-130 especially for the requirements of the onshore market in Germany and other countries in Europe.
