Wind turbine manufacturer Senvion has launched a new 4.2 MW generator aimed at markets with low and medium speed wind sites.
The 4.2M140 and 4.2M148 are based on the company’s existing 3.XM series and will help Senvion to boost its presence in the North American market. It said in a statement that the new platform was the result of its efforts to strengthen its competitive edge through supply chain and technology development.
“The 4.2M140 and 148 are the logical next step in our product line for the US, and initial market indications are extremely positive,” said Lance Marram, CEO, Senvion North America. “The 4.2 MW platform is driving down LCoE, maximizing yields and – considering our strong track record – creating long term business case certainty for our customers’ investments.”
The 4.2M140 and 4.2M148 type turbines provide a modular approach and technical advancements such as lighter, longer and more efficient rotor blades. Senvion’s control technologies enable them to maximize energy production and adapt to specific to regional requirements, such as noise, site conditions, and grid.
They have also been designed for more efficiency, higher availability and lower transport, installation, and service costs, Senvion said.
