World-wide highest wind turbine reached 6 million kilowatt hours

(PresseBox) (Ostseebad Rerik, ) The wind turbine W90 was developed by W2E Wind to Energy GmbH. It has an installed rated power of 2.5 megawatt. The nacelle of the prototype was erected at a lattice tower. The hub height is 160 m and the total height is 205 m. The world-wide highest turbine was commissioned in November and December 2006.

In November 2007 six million kilowatt hours were produced.

The word-wide attended turbine was visited by certain costumers, insurers and bankers. In spite of extensive measurements and many tests, the prototype operates with high actual availability. Only in January 2007 a yield of more than one million kilowatt hours were produced.

The wind turbine is characterised by a number of innovative solutions. Several new ideas are applied for European patents. As a result an absolutely reliable and safe turbine with a very high lifetime was developed. The turbine is assurable and bankable. The A-Design-Assessment of the German Lloyd was completed in December 2006.

The project in Laasow nearby Cottbus (Brandenburg, Germany) was carried out in cooperation by Fuhrländer AG (licensee, manufacture of the nacelle), SeeBA Energiesysteme GmbH (manufacture of the tower) und W2E Wind to Energy GmbH (licenser, engineering).

At the moment eight wind turbines are erected on 100 m tubular towers in Niedersachsen (Germany). The wind park is named Gifhorn. The Fuhrländer AG is the manufacture of the nacelles. Fuhrländer uses their own brand name for the turbine: FL2500.

In Spring of 2008 nine turbines W100 with 2.5 MW and a rotor diameter of 100 m will be erected on lattice towers. The hub height will be 141 m.
