Starting with the development of the 3-MW-technology already in 2011 W2E set some points on the market. Together with Siemens AG a cooperation on the application of a compact mid-speed drive train generator – the hybrid drive – was agreed.
Within short time the well experienced W2E-Team could erect two prototypes with a rotor diameter of 120 m at the wind test field Kankel near Rostock and put them into service.
At the international fair “WindEnergy Hamburg 2014” the technical control board “TÜV Nord” will hand over the A-Design assessment to W2E.
With that the 3-MW-technology is ready to market. Already today project developers apply that technology in their projects and licensors start with serial production.
The 3-MW devices correspond entirely to the requirements of Germanischer Lloyd’s 2010 issue. Likewise German and international grid-codes are fulfilled.
The development was supported by the chair of Technical Mechanics/Dynamics at the University of Rostock. The entire project benefitted from the support of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy in consequence of a decision by the German Bundestag.
