Enercon E-126 Wind Turbine

February 6, 2008


Enercon E-126 is the world’s largest wind turbine. This turbine has a rotor blade length of 126 meters. This new turbine is likely to produce 7 megawatts (or 20 million kilowatt hours per year). That’s enough to power about 5,000 households of four in Europe. The earth is saved! Air travel is more fun too!

    Hi,

    I want to know more about how such a colossal wind turbine will deal with a hurricane.

    I hear they can change the pitch of the blades, a method so expensive that only the large, commercial-grade turbines can have.

    Do you have other sources for me to look up to learn more about this?

    Also, what will one of these super-titanic 7-MW machines cost. Anyone knows their price?

    These Enercon turbines are really cool-looking devices, don’t you think?

    Thanks. oz.

    Oz,

    I have similar concerns. How would they deal with a hurricane and the cost of installing one.
