NEG-Micon introduces biggest wind turbine
NEG-Micon of Denmark is introducing its biggest rotor to date, the NM 92/2750, measuring 92 metres and intended for a 2.75-mw wind turbine. This turbine has been specially developed for the growing offshore market. It will be unveiled for the first time at Wind Energy 2002 in Hamburg, from June 18-21.
The NM 92/2750 is basically identical to the NM 80/2750 apart from the size of the rotor and the special offshore features of the new turbine. Like the latter, the new turbine is equipped with Pitch Regulated Variable Speed technology. PRVS is the obvious choice for offshore turbines, allowing them to meet the requirements of the electrical utilities for efficient and immediate regulation of power whenever necessary.
"The NM 92/2750 and the NM 80/2750 together represent a new generation of wind turbines. Until now we have used stall regulation... But now is the right time to supplement these with the use of PRVS, as this allows increased regulation possibilities. The size of the new turbine also makes it important to bring down the dead weight of the rotor through reduction of the dead weight of the blades and advanced regulation," Ole Gunneskov, head of R&D at NEG-Micon, explains. PRVS is economically profitable for the turbine type in question.
The NM 92/2750 is able to meet all control needs and can be adapted for all site-specific conditions offshore-with regard to climate, power, noise and grid connection.
