XD- and XE onshore series
Darwind’s parent company XEMC has been producing onshore direct drive wind turbines since they acquired the Z72 direct drive technology in 2006. The Z72 was rebranded, improved and today more than 1500 onshore XE-series Direct Drive wind turbines have been delivered by XEMC Windpower.
The original Dutch designed turbine was fitted with European components. Nowadays the turbines still use components supplied by those western companies, some of which have establishments in China. XEMC has been producing electrical equipment since 1936. XEMC’s generator company produces the permanent magnet generators for the western and Asian markets.
The XD140 onshore 4MW turbine is derived from the offshore dedicated XD115 model. With a larger rotor diameter and designed for lower average wind speeds (compared to its predecessor), this turbine brings the benefits of the XD115 design to the onshore locations. The focus remains on fast installation and low maintenance. Hub heights can go from 100m up to 140m.
The XE93-2MW turbine model belongs to the XE onshore series from which more than 1500 units have been installed. The XE93 is a wind turbine with a nominal power of 2MW and a three bladed rotor with a diameter of 93 meters. The standard hub height is 80m and can be raised up to 140m. The sealed nacelle makes the XE93 very suitable for low wind onshore, near shore and desert locations.
