ICYMI Wind evolution In 2015 7.5MW turbines replaced 300kW from 1991

Just 12 of these models will replace the 50 WindMaster 300kW models comissioned in 1991, boosting project capacity from 15MW to 90MW. The juxtaposition of old and new gives a good perspective on the lengths, or heights, that the industry has achieved in 26 years. RWE Innogy is one of three partners installing 86 modern turbines, creating a new Noordoostpolder wind farm on the banks of the Ijsselmeer lake, Netherlands. The newly repowered area will be home to 48 Siemens 3MW offshore turbines, and 38 Enercon 7.5MW E-126 turbines - the largest commercially operated onshore turbines. RWE will remove its 50 WindMaster 300kW turbines once installation of its 12 Enercon E-126 models is complete. The WindMasters' hub height of 30 metres, and rotor diameter of 25 metres, is dwarfed by Enercon's 135-metre hub height and 127-metre rotor. The foundations, which were completed in April...
