Senvion, a global manufacturer of wind turbines, presents the Senvion 3.6M140 at this year’s AWEA WINDPOWER 2017 conference. The company is also announcing the adaptation of its new series of modular 2-MW class turbines, the 2XM series, to the North American market. This competitive new range of turbines will allow Senvion to flexibly address various customer needs across American states and Canadian provinces.
The 3.6M140 is a power upgrade of the 3.4M140 that is already available in North America. It is suitable for sites with medium wind speeds and perfect for pad constrained projects. It will also allow for additional power output in areas with low wind speeds.
While the 3.6M140 is a great fit for the kind of terrains in the U.S. Northeast and around the Great Lakes region, Senvion’s 2-MW class turbines will be highly suitable for projects in Texas, Oklahoma, the Great Plains and the Canadian Prairies, for example. All turbines will feature industry-leading levelized cost of energy (LCoE). Its low sound characteristics make it a perfect fit for areas where permitting is challenging. The 3.6M140 will be available for hub heights from 80 to 160 meters (262 to 525 feet).
“By introducing a whole new range of turbines to the North American market, Senvion is taking its product portfolio to the next level,” said Jürgen Geissinger, CEO at Senvion. “We are addressing the need for highly competitive, modular technology that can be adapted to project specific needs. The new products will open up new opportunities for us and our North American customers.”
Helmut Herold, CEO North America at Senvion, adds: “Our new turbines for North America suit a broad range of different conditions, allowing Senvion to flexibly address customer needs while offering cutting-edge design and industry-leading levelized cost of energy.”
To date, Senvion has an installed capacity of more than 2,600 MW across North America which includes hundreds of wind turbines in the US across California, the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, Indiana, Michigan, New York, Pennsylvania, Oklahoma, and Minnesota. In Canada, Senvion turbines constitute 10% of the country’s wind energy capacity. Headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, Senvion is American owned by New York-based Centerbridge Partners L.P.
