Hamburg, 15 June 2011 – Four years after successful introduction of its 900 kW wind turbine, PowerWind GmbH has developed a 500 kW turbine for the British market. The PowerWind 500 is now available. Equipped with a generator with a rated power of 500 kW, the turbine meets all technical requirements for the current, highly profitable feed-in tariff of 19.7 pence/kWh. Especially with its rotor diameter of 56 metres, the PowerWind 500 produces significantly higher en-ergy yields than comparable products from other wind turbine manufacturers. Thanks to low noise emissions due to comparatively low speeds, the turbine is also suitable for sites near resi-dential areas.

With more than 130 turbines of the type PowerWind 56 sold worldwide, PowerWind GmbH is now one of the most important providers of modern sub-MW wind turbines in Europe and the US. The German manufacturer specialises in meeting the needs of community wind customers. Besides high-quality technology products, this specific customer group is particularly interested in individual customer support, comprehensive availability, planning advice and financial advice as well as tailored service solutions. Customers of PowerWind include local project developers, medium-sized businesses, farms, schools, universities and recreational facilities.
