Senvion launches wind turbines based on Kenersys’ platform for Indian market

Senvion has announced the launch of its 2.3 MW and 2.4 MW turbines for the Indian market. The turbines are based on a platform developed by Kenersys – which was acquired by Senvion in 2016 – but optimised using Senvion technology.

As a part of the acquisition, Senvion took over a turbine manufacturing unit of Kenersys located in Maharashtra, which has an annual production capacity of 250 MW. The turbines, which will be manufactured at this unit, are expected to be available for installation later this year.

The 2.3 MW and 2.4 MW turbines are suitable for high temperatures of up to +50 ºC, and have a modular design, four rotor diameters from 110 metres to 124 metres, and hub heights of 90-120 metre. According to Senvion, the turbines are adapted to Indian wind conditions for very low to medium wind speeds, and the full converter system and control technologies fulfil the current local regulatory and grid requirements.
