Converteam Powers China's First 5MW Permanent Magnet Direct Drive Offshore Wind Turbine

Chinese wing turbine manufacturer Xiangtan Electric Manufacturing Corporation Ltd (XEMC) has recently unveiled the world's first 5MW permanent magnet generator for a direct-drive offshore-specific wing turbine.


The announcement follows successful completion of full load, back to back, testing of the turbine in which Converteam participated with their class leading Medium Voltage MV7000 power converter. The tests, undertaken at XEMC's generator test facility in Xiangtan in China's Hunan province, verified critical design parameters of performance and safety as well as overall effectiveness of the new turbine. XEMC plans to initially install two of this new class of turbines by the end of 2010, one in China and the other in Europe.
