Acciona Windpower has unveiled a new 125-meter rotor for its AW3000 3 MW wind turbine.

The AW 125/3000 model combines a 125-meter rotor with the AW3000 3 MW wind turbine generator and Acciona's 120-meter concrete tower to improve the turbine's performance at low-wind sites, the company says, adding that the 125-meter rotor captures wind energy from a swept area of over 12,300 square meters.

Acciona will complete the design certification for the new rotor this year, and the first blades are expected to be installed by the end of the year. The AW 125/3000 will be available for delivery in 2014 for both 50 Hz and 60 Hz markets.
