The prototype of the new W2E wind turbine has been supplying electricity to the Ukrainian grid for two weeks now. With 151m rotor diameter and 4.5MW, the W2E-151/4.5 is one of the largest onshore turbines in the world. The very short development time of the W2E engineers is astonishing. In less than 1.5 years, the design including assembly, erection and commissioning was completed. In the meantime, five turbines have been completely erected.
The short turnaround time was achieved through intensive, cooperative cooperation with system suppliers and close cooperation with the Ukrainian customer FWT Ukraine. In the meantime, the technology has also been sold to a major Chinese customer. The W2E engineers are already planning a significant increase in rated power.
