Is it possible to increase the yields of an offshore wind power plant by 15 percent without having to change its dimensions? It is. The solution to this challenge is to constantly refine the plants existent technology for maximum optimization. Following this principle, our engineers have used the proven 5M wind turbine as a basis for designing the 6M offshore model – and have thus developed a wind turbine with a nominal power of 6.15 megawatts and a rotor diameter of 126 meters that ranks among the most powerful offshore wind power plants in the world.
To deliver an optimal performance out on the open sea the 6M wind turbine has been designed to match the challenges of large offshore wind farms and deep waters. Many of its components feature a redundant design, thus increasing its availability. Various sensors ensure that any failure is detected and fixed as quickly as possible. In case of maintenance, the 6M’s spacious design allows for maximum comfort to ensure quick repairs.
The REpower 6M is not only groundbreaking in terms of reliability and maintenance. An advanced cooling system for the generator enables the offshore wind power plant to deliver a continuous capacity of 6 megawatts. The refined electrical system guarantees a long lifespan and highest yields at minimal operating costs.
