KW3EX Wind Turbine


Product Details

The KW3EX wind turbine is the first ATEX certified turbine in the world.

Based on the KW3 wind turbine, the KW3EX has been optimized for the harsh environment experienced for off shore wind turbines.

Developed for use in the North Sea, it has been installed for many years on un-manned gas platforms, offering a secure and reliable solution for power generation. It delivers enough power for oil rigs, providing a viable alternative to the constant challenge of sourcing power from large diesel engines. The unique design works at safe operating temperatures and will not generate sparks, even in environments where there are highly inflammable materials.
