225kW Wind Power

Agricultural/Businesses, Small Communities, Schools, Resorts, Islands, Remote Locations

The turbine is characterized by simplicity in terms of its design and usage of proven technology, resulting in low maintenance costs. This model has been successfully in operation for many years under tough conditions, while generating excellent returns.

Given the ongoing trend for higher capacity machines, the GWP 30 is perfectly positioned for smaller scale wind farms at locations where demand for electricity is less high or where bigger turbines are simply not an option due to installation limitations.
