With its 61-metre rotor and advanced control features, the DIRECTWIND 61 maximizes your energy output from low-wind (class IIIA) sites. This pitch-controlled, variable-speed wind turbine is optimized for distributed energy generation. Thanks to EWT’s continuous market-driven innovation, it combines high yields with outstanding reliability. Our direct drive technology means fewer moving parts, so less maintenance and more availability. Meanwhile the aerodynamic rotor design ensures high efficiency and reduces noise.

1. Rotor blades
Large rotor diameter to achieve high energy yields. Optimum aerodynamic performance, resulting in high efficiency and low noise levels.

2. Variable pitch
Each blade is automatically pitch to control the generator rotation speed.

3. Nacelle design
Spacious nacelle design for excellent serviceability and maximum safety.

4. Direct drive generator
Fewer rotating parts reduce mechanical stress, leading to a lower maintenance need and therefore superior availability levels.

5. Tower design
Type Conical tubular steel, internal ascent. Hub heights 46 and 69 m
