At Husum WindEnergy 2012 the German turbine manufacturer Kenersys launched its new turbine: Kenersys K120 2.3MW.
„This turbine was especially designed for sites with low speeds – also below 6.5m/s. It reaches a sensational capacity factor of 45% also at these sites.”, as Jochen Weick, Kenersys Group Vice President Corporate Communication. Thus the K120 2.3MW is one of the best performing turbines in its class.
The new wind turbine has a rotor diameter of 120 meters and a swept area of 11.310 sqm - whereby it tops the K100 2.5MW (that was developed for medium wind speed sites) by 44%. Kenersys provides the world premiere with two hub heights: 90 meters to erect the turbine also at sites with height restrictions of 150 meters. And also 145 meters to maximise the Energy Yield: “As solution for high hub height we have the highest concrete steel system that is available on market. In combination with the rotor diameter this turbine is predestinated for high Energy Yields – also at sites with very low wind speeds”, according to Jochen Weick.
As for the established turbines K100 2.5MW and K110 2.4MW the K120 2.3MW was designed on basis of the Kenersys platform strategy: Synerdrive TechnologyTM.
The Synerdrive TechnologyTM is has unique features that makes the turbine independent from grid and climate – and because of this it gains highest energy yields worldwide.
GridshaperTM, the full conversion system, provides worldwide perfect grid integration – without relevant changes. CoolrideTM is a sophisticated cooling circuit that makes the turbine independent from climate other atmospheric conditions. Even if there is a grid shutdown the turbine can supply the grid directly after quick start – fort this Kenersys has the Internal Supply UnitTM that supports the power electronics with constant voltage and frequency – even if the grid has dripped.
BWE Vice President Andreas Jesse comments gladly about the Kenersys world premiere: “The onshore sector will grow in the next years. The K120 is the evidence for this growth. Sites with supposed low wind speed can be developed economically reasonable. I am proud that the turbines of Muenster are manufactured in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania.”
