Maximizing your benefits means boosting your turbine’s output. The SG 8.0-167 DD delivers higher energy yields at all wind speeds. Proven concepts work with a larger rotor to lower risk and increase energy production. Maximum power for projects at sea Designed for most challenging offshore sites High wind, offshore location By building on our direct drive technology, which uses fewer moving parts than geared machines, the robust SG 8.0-167 DD enables superior performance for added benefit. Utilizing existing elements of our production model creates key advantages. We standardize processes by leveraging our fully developed supply chain while re-using both current and future production facilities. This lets us manufacture high volumes with low risk – over 1,000 units will be produced at the beginning of 2020. Efficient direct drive technology Direct drive technology reduces the number of rating and wear-prone components in offshore turbines, making them simpler to maintain. Efficiency is improved by using a permanent magnet generator, which needs no excitation power. These and other design simplifications keep the weight low and dimensions small, lowering transport and installation costs. High Wind Ride Through The High Wind Ride Through (HWRT) system is a breakthrough in stabilizing energy output. When the wind speed is higher than 25 meters per second, wind turbines typically shut down for self-protection. Those equipped with the HWRT system will slowly ramp down power output instead, enabling smoother production ramp-down and thereby a more reliable electrical grid.
