Norvento turbine

Medium-scale wind turbine manufacturer Norvento has launched a new, extended 24-metre rotor for its nED100 turbine, capable of increasing the Annual Energy Production (AEP) of the 100kW machine by 8 per cent on average.

With a 20% Feed-in Tariff degression planned for April 2015, the new rotor – available at no additional cost to new buyers – will help landowners considerably lessen the impact of this anticipated revenue loss and further bring down energy costs on site.

By lengthening each blade by one metre, Spain-based Norvento has enlarged the overall rotor diameter to 24m, two metres longer than the existing 22m model, thereby increasing the swept area of the blades by more than 72m2. This swept area increase allows nED100 to harness significantly more energy and boost its efficiency in all wind speeds.
