REpower Systems SE has launched its 3.0M122 wind turbine as a 60 Hz variant for the Canadian market. According to the company, the 3.0M122 is the third and most recent turbine type to be added to the REpower's 3.XM series since September and is designed especially for the specific conditions encountered at low-wind locations.

The turbine has a rated output of 3 MW and a rotor diameter of 122 meters. The first variant with a hub height of 100 meters will go on sale in Canada later this year, and the prototype is to be erected in the first quarter of 2015.

"With the REpower 3.0M122, we can achieve optimum energy yield at non-coastal sites with lower wind speeds as well as in challenging areas such as hilly terrain or forests," comments Andreas Nauen, CEO of REpower Systems SE. “Particularly in Ontario, many wind farm locations are situated near to built-up areas. For projects like these, apart from the cost-effectiveness of our turbines, it is also their quietness that makes them so impressive."
