Norvento launches latest medium-scale wind turbine in Glasgow

Norvento nED100kW turbineSpanish wind turbine manufacturer Norvento has launched a new model of its medium-scale nED100 turbine at a UK renewables event in Glasgow.

This re-engineered unit introduces a number of innovations that will simultaneously increase the efficiency of the machine and reduce its upfront and long-term generation costs. 

With its smaller and more compact generator, as well as its lighter, redesigned nacelle and a more efficient 12m blade design, the new 100kW model will enable landowners and commercial users to maximise financial returns and savings in the post-subsidy UK medium wind market.

The launch of the new turbine comes amidst ongoing reductions to Feed-in Tariff (FiT) support for onshore wind, which, in conjunction with steadily rising retail electricity prices and falling technology and installation costs, are driving a fundamental shift in the way medium wind projects are deployed in the UK.
