History of XEMC Darwind
Direct drive wind turbines are our roots
The direct drive permanent magnet generator technology was started by Zyphyros B.V., which started as a subsidiary of Lagerwey Windturbines B.V.
The first turbine of this type, the 2 MW Z72 turbine prototype, has been in operation for a number of years in the Netherlands.
XEMC Windpower acquired the rights to manufacture and sell the Zephyros technology all over the world. The Z72 was rebranded, improved and today more than 3,000 onshore XE-series Direct Drive wind turbines have been delivered by XEMC Windpower.
