The next generation of the company's permanent magnet, direct drive distributed wind turbines is now available. At 60 kilowatts of rated power, with a 24-meter rotor, the recently launched NPS 60-24 can produce substantial amounts of electricity to generate a healthy income stream. It provides long-term benefits with lower ownership costs over the lifetime of the turbine. A new 24-m rotor features state-of-the-art hub and blade technology with superior aerodynamics providing a larger swept area. This increases the annual energy production (AEP) of the NPS 60-24 by up to 15% over the previous NPS 60-23 model, dependent on wind conditions. The turbine [...]
