Direct drive wind turbines

XEMC Windpower Ltd. was China's fifth largest manufacturer of wind turbines in 2014. With the 2MW direct drive technology, which originated from the Netherlands, XEMC built up a sustainable position in the Chinese market having more than 3,000 wind turbines already installed since 2006. Based on the 2MW technology XEMC’s product portfolio also includes 2.5MW and 5 MW direct drive wind turbines. 

Strong partnership on- and offshore wind turbines

Seen the company’s drive to become a global supplier and services provider of both on- and offshore multi-MW Direct Drive Permanent Magnet Generators, XEMC Windpower’s acquisition of XEMC Darwind has been a logical step.

The alliance is a boost to the rapid development, prototyping and series production of both onshore and offshore turbines. Field experience and hard data, technological know-how from both countries and the assets of a very strong & ambitious parent company are now combined into one:

“Dutch design integrity & Chinese industrialization power”
