The tried-and-tested MM range now features a new wind power system model for low-wind locations: the MM100. Based on the concept of its predecessors, the MM82 and MM92, it combines the experience and expertise we have gained through the installation and operation of more than 2,000 of these wind power systems. With a swept rotor area of 7,854 m2, the REpower MM100 was optimized specifically for use in low-wind (IEC IIA) applications, and comes with hub heights ranging from 78 to 100 meters.
Every market has its unique requirements, which is why the MM100 wind power system was developed specifically for low-wind locations. With its large rotor diameter of 100 meters, the system provides customers with the highest levels of energy generation possible with low wind speeds.
The REpower MM100 was originally developed for the North American wind market and, up to now, has only been available as a 60 Hz model. With its high capacity factor, it has proven its worth there, as it can achieve a nominal power of 1.8 megawatts with low wind speeds, a key benefit at locations with limited grid entry capacity.
Unlike in the US, output optimization for the available space carries more weight in Europe than the consideration of limited grid entry capacity, which is why we offer the MM100 with 2.0 MW in Europe rather than the 1.8 MW available in the US.
Thanks to its low sound power level of 104.8 dB(A), it is one of the quietest systems in its class and therefore better suited for use on onshore wind farms.
