SIEMENS WIND TURBINE SWT-3.6-107 (COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS)
Siemens onshore and offshore wind turbine technology was developed from decades of integrated experience. Today, siemens geared wind turbines have rotor diameters of up to 130 meters and a nominal power of up to 4 MW. Current direct drive turbines even reach nominal ratings of up to 8 MW and excel with a rotor diameter of 154 meters. But these features have come a long way. The geared turbine SWT-2.3-82 VS, its predecessors the SWT-2.3-82, SWT-2.3-93, and the SWT-2.3-120 (prototype) were the classic choice for large-scale onshore wind power projects, while the SWT-3.6-107 sets the benchmark for offshore. And the direct drive turbines started as a 3 MW product that was launched in early 2010. Today’s powerful and highly efficient wind turbines for both onshore and offshore sites are based on these former benchmarks.
