    Product information

    Evolved technology for optimal benefits

    To properly realize the potential of your wind power plants, you need turbines that take advantage of a site’s unique qualities. For a lifetime of maximized returns, we developed the SWT-3.3-130 Low Noise: the quietest turbine in its class, and the SWT-3.6-130: for the highest AEP in its class. Based on award-winning reliable technology, for proven benefit.

    Innovative design for onshore optimization

    By basing both the SWT-3.3-130 Low Noise and the SWT-3.6-130 on the proven technology of the SWT-3.3-130, we were able to make small but significant additions that bring a whole new level of benefit to your moderate wind sites while maintaining a lower cost of electricity. While the real-time Power Optimization offered by all Siemens Onshore Direct Drive turbines allows them to adjust to ambient environmental conditions for continuously high output, both turbines have additional features to capitalize on your site’s unique potential.

     

    The use of scaled components is an important factor in the turbines’ ability: whether it’s the longer generator with an extra row of magnets to ensure increased performance, or the updated nacelle design that accommodates an even more efficient direct cooling system. The longer blade (compared to the predecessor SWT-3.2-113) is possible because of the aeroelastically tailored blade design. This agile design allows a larger rotor while staying within the load envelope – thus providing a cost-efficient blade design with optimized energy yield.

    Higher output performance

    Both of the turbines feature the innovative DinoTail® Next Generation serrations attached on the trailing edges of their blades. On the SWT-3.3-130 Low Noise the DinoTail® Next Generation works in conjunction with Vortex generators on the blades’ length for further reduction of noise level and improved performance. The increased rating of the SWT-3.6-130 gives you a higher output with no compromises to the robust technology you have come to rely on, for maximized returns in moderate wind conditions. In addition, a variety of tower heights (85, 115, 135, and 165 meters) enable tip heights up to 227 meters, making the SWT-3.3-130 Low Noise and SWT-3.6-130 ideal choices for your onshore sites’ needs. The greater hub height of the 165-meter tower allows more energy to be harvested from the same amount of wind, without sacrificing turbine integrity.

    Wind Power Monthly award

    Proven excellence

    The SWT-3.3-130 LN and the SWT-3.6-130 are an upgrade designed on the same baseline components as the SWT-3.3-130, the 2015 Wind Power Monthly Gold award winner. Wind Power Monthly annually reviews the industry’s best new products, and the SWT-3.3-130 won in the 3 MW-Plus category. Evaluation criteria were: innovative technology, quality of design and manufacturing, track record, impact on the market, and the ease of installation and maintenance. The winner meets all expectations.
