The Switch permanent magnet generators are featured in a video showing Japan’s integrated center of the offshore wind power industry in the Hibikinada area of Kitakyushu City.
This July, we will be delivering our 500th medium-speed permanent magnet generator for wind. This special milestone PMM 1500 generator will be heading to an offshore location where the wind is plentiful.
In 2018, the offshore wind market grew by 0.5% to 4.49 GW of new installations, and the total installed wind capacity saw an increase of 9.6% compared to the end of 2017. So, what kind of effect this had on our ongoing production efforts?
GWEC has released their latest global wind energy statistics. Total new installed capacity of wind energy reached 51.3 GW in 2018.
