Siemens Energy launched a SWT-3.0-101 Direct Drive wind turbine. The new SWT-3.0.101 with a rated power of 3 megawatts (MW) offers innovation through a completely new Direct Drive concept introducing a permanent magnet generator. With half the parts of a conventional geared wind turbine, and much less than half the number of moving parts, the new wind turbine will require less maintenance and increase profitability for customers. The new Direct Drive wind turbine features a rotor diameter of 101 meters and is now available for sale for onshore and offshore projects around the world.
