Northern Power Systems unveils new low-wind speed turbines

Northern Power Systems is now offering two new wind turbine models designed for low wind sites.

Both the NPS 60-23 and the NPS 100-24 are based on the NPS 100-21 platform, but use features that produce higher energy capture in low winds while reducing noise from the turbine. NPS has deployed 20 of these turbines in the U.S., United Kingdom and Italy from 2012 to 2013.

The NPS 60 model generates 59.9 kW rated power and is used in places where connecting to the grid is difficult. The NPS 100 model utilizes permanent magnet direct-drive technology and has fewer moving parts than a conventional gearbox-based turbine, the company said in a release.
