Lagerwey Wind: “Humble Start with Wider Ambition”

Lagerwey Wind: “Humble Start with Wider Ambition”

Lagerwey Wind’s first commercial project was the development of a novel 2-MW IEC class IIA direct drive turbine with 82-metre rotor diameter as a license product for an Indian client. One prototype turns at Germany’s wind turbine-testing site in Grevenbroich since 2009. A second prototype operates since 2010 at a site in Tamil Nadu, southern India. This site is characterised by ± 70 percent capacity factor during annual six-month period wind seasons, when ambient temperatures are high and operating temperatures demanding. Blueprint The initial L82-2.0 MW (82m rotor diameter) served as a blueprint for the larger L93-2.6-MW (2 units) and L100-2.5-MW platform (2 units) successor models. All have a distinct nacelle shape with prominently visible ring generator located directly behind the rotor. The L93-2.6-MW, like other Lagerwey turbine models, has all power electronic system...
