KW3EX Wind Turbine for Oil & Gas (Off-Shore Energy)

North Sea, KW3-EX, Industrial Installation

Product Details

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.

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