Sister company of The Wind Factory, Hoekstra Suwald, installed and commissioned an EWT Directwind 900kW - 40m tower in Janum, Friesland The Netherlands. A limited hub height was allowed on site, which made the EWT the best and most productive solution for the farmer. It´s direct drive system with variable speed has less maintenance compared to gearbox turbines and with the full-power converter a low cut-in wind speed is assured. The turbine replaces two Lagerwey 80kW wind turbines which have been in operation for almost 20 years.
