German-based Enercon is among the world’s leaders in terms of production of wind turbines for onshore wind farms. The company offers a wide range of wind turbines having different capacities and designed for different wind and landscape conditions. Enercon is the only producer making all spare parts on its own factories.
EP1-platform based wind turbines (1 MW)
The low capacity turbine energy generators (less than 1 MW) are based on the EP-1 platform: Enercon E-44 (rotor diameter – 44 m, 900 kW), Enercon E-48 (rotor diameter – 48 m, 800 kW) and Enercon E-53 (rotor diameter – 53 m, 800 kW).
EP2-platform based wind turbines (2 MW)
The 2 MW product line is based on the EP-2 platform designed specially for Class I (IEC) winds, they are ideal for coast lines with heavy winds: Enercon E-70 (rotor diameter – 71 m, 2.3 MW), Enercon E-82 (rotor diameter – 82 m, 2 MW), Enercon E-92 (rotor diameter – 82 m, 2.3 MW) — good for Class IIA winds, i.e. most inland conditions, and Enercon E-103 EP-2 (rotor diameter – 103 m, 2.35 MW) — for sites with low wind conditions.
EP3-platform based wind turbines (3 MW)
The 3 MW product line is based on the EP-3 platform: Enercon E-101 (rotor diameter – 101 m, 3 MW or 3.5 MW) — good for Class IIA winds, i.e. most inland conditions and Enercon E-115 (rotor diameter – 115 m, 3,2 MW) — for sites with low wind conditions.
EP4-platform based wind turbines (4 MW)
High performance wind turbines having a capacity of 4+ MW are based on the EP-4 platform and designed for sites with low to medium wind conditions: Enercon E-126 EP4 (rotor diameter – 127 m, 4.2 MW) and Enercon E-141 EP4 (rotor diameter – 141 m, 4.2 MW) — for sites with low wind conditions.
EP8-platform based wind turbines (8 MW)
The most powerful wind turbine for onshore wind power generation in the world is based on the EP-8 platform: E-126 (rotor diameter – 126 m, 7.58 MW) – for coastal and inland sites with excellent wind conditions.
