REpower, part of the Suzlon Group, has announced a new offshore wind turbine. Dubbed the REpower 6.2M152, the turbine has a rated power capacity of 6.15 MW and a rotor diameter of 152 meters.

According to the company, the larger rotor diameter compared to the last generation - the REpower 6.2M126 (126 meters) - achieves an increase in energy yield by up to 20% at wind speeds of 9.5 m/s.

The company says it has already sold the prototype REpower 6.2M152 to an unidentified customer. The prototype will be constructed with a hub height of 124 meters at an onshore site in northern Germany, with construction scheduled for completion by the end of 2014. REpower expects the 6.2M152 to enter commercial production in 2015.
