Wind turbines

Onshore

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. 

Supply chain

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.

 

XD137-4MW

XD137-4MW

The XD137 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.

XE93-2MW

XE93-2MW

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.

Offshore

XD- and XE offshore series

Darwind’s Dutch based design team took care of the development of the XD offshore series. The initial design of the onshore Z72 and XE-series are the perfect basis for an offshore turbine. Our “less is more” philosophy shows itself in the single main bearing and direct drive technology, with one goal in mind: Reduce the Cost of Energy. Our XD offshore series have then been the basis of the XE offshore series being introduced into the Asian market.

XD115-5MW

XD115-5MW

The XD115-5MW is designed with offshore application foremost in mind. As such it is the first offshore dedicated multi MW Direct Drive permanent magnet generator wind turbine, based on in-house proven technology.
