      Despite the new features, the classical advantages of the earlier Siemens turbine types have not been forgotten in the SWT-3.6-107 design: major components, such as the rotor hub, the main shaft,
      the gearbox and the yaw system are all of particularly heavy dimensions, the safety systems are fail-safe, the blade and nacelle lightning protection performance is well-proven, and all details are
      designed using best engineering practice.
      A solid Siemens basis improved with the latest performance standards – that’s the SWT-3.6-107 turbine.

    • Direct drive wind turbine SWT-3.0-101
      Bright outlook for improved profitability

    • Nominal power: 3000 kW
      Rotor diameter: 101 m
      Swept area: 8000 m2
      Rotor speed:    rpm
      Power regulation: pitch regulated
      Gearbox: NO

      The SWT-3.0-101 wind turbine from Siemens
      offers innovation through a completely new generator. With half the parts of a conventional geared turbine, and much less than half the number of moving parts, the new wind turbine is easy to maintain and extremely reliable.
      The compact design allows for cost-effective transportation on standard vehicles within most markets.

      In designing a wind turbine, a holistic view of the
      design and construction, materials, processes,
      manufacture, and installation is critical. With the
      SWT-3.0-101, Siemens started with the ambitious
      aim of reducing the number of components by half,
      while increasing performance. Thanks to innovative
      engineering, that vision is now a reality.
      The gearless SWT-3.0-101 carefully balances all
      these factors in a compact system that has the
      potential to significantly lower maintenance costs
      and service time.

      Reduced complexity
      Regardless of how reliable Siemens’ wind turbine gearboxes have been in the past, the gearbox is always the most complex component of a wind turbine. Eliminating the gearbox reduces complexity and increases reliability. Siemens has opted for a permanent magnet generator for improved efficiency. Unlike an electrically excited machine with a gearbox, a permanent magnet excited machine does not expend any energy on the excitation itself.
      The SWT-3.0-101 also has an outer rotor, where the rotor spins on the outside of the stator. This design feature allows the rotor to operate within narrower tolerances, which aids in keeping the dimensions of the nacelle compact.

      With the release of a new 3.6-megawatt wind turbine
      featuring a 120-meter rotor, Siemens has produced
      a machine that can generate more power than its predecessor could at similar wind speeds. The SWT-3.6-120 is based on the proven technology of the SWT-3.6-107, which is currently the world’s most popular offshore wind turbine.
      Basically, the only difference between the two machines’ core components is the rotor. The SWT-3.6-120 is equipped with 58.5-meter long rotor blades, giving it a swept area of 11,300 m2 or the equivalent to nearly two football fields.
      Tests indicate that the new machine will generate approximately 10 percent more electricity in comparison to similar wind turbines.

    • The new Siemens 6.0 MW

    • Nominal power: 6000 kW
      Rotor diameter: 120 m or 154m
      Swept area: 11300 m2 or 18600 m2

      The Siemens 6.0 MW offshore wind turbine redefines
      the wind industry standards for leanness, robustness and lifecycle profitability.
      Based on Siemens Direct Drive technology, the 6.0 MW turbine has 50% fewer moving parts than comparable geared machines and a towerhead mass of less than 350 tons. This unique combination of robustness and low weight significantly reduces infrastructure, installation and
      servicing costs, and boosts lifetime energy output.
      Incorporating the aggregate intelligence of Siemens, the 6.0 MW offshore wind turbine thinks for itself. It constantly manages its own operating load helping it remain within its design criteria irrespective of the conditions. Its advanced diagnostics system provides comprehensive real-time performance data and service requirements and will keep track of lifetime use and its overall asset condition. Even its user interface is clear and intuitive.

      It is no coincidence that a product of this simple beauty and intelligence has been created by Siemens. We are world leaders in offshore wind power, with over 20 years of experience.
