Upwind rotor.

ELEKTROMAT 20 kW from Windkraft Zentrale in Brodersby  was designed and manufactured by charismatic pioneer Horst Frees. The later Turbines did not have a Vane, but a wind wheel for active yaw (ca.1984). Windkraft Zentrale erected Turbines in India and Germany. Besides his native German language, Horst spoke nicely Swedish. As a kid  – shortly after the second world war - he spent many summer holidays in Sweden.
AeroStar 5 meter blades on the photo – later he used AeroStar "super 5 m" blades.
Horst Frees sadly passed away too early. Horst Frees was one of the initiators of the German Wind Energy Organisation “Fördergesellschaft Windenergie”.

First Turbine designed and built by Aloys Wobben in summer 1981 - using Økær 5 m Blades. Enercon was founded by Aloys Wobben in 1984. First Enercon Turbine manufactured was a 55 kW. In 1992 Enercons first Gearless Turbine design, equipped with a multipole generator was fabricated: The Enercon E-40, a 500 or 600 kW version Turbine. All Enercon Turbines have variable speed generators.

New gearless designs were developed in the following years, in the range from 30 kW to 4.5 MW.

(E-12, E-33, E-44, E-48, E-53, E-58, E-70E4, E-82 and E-112). As per january 31st. 2007.

Blade suppliers after Aerostar, were LM Glasfiber and later Abeking & Rasmussen, and now Enercon's own design and blade factories.

A stand alone version, rated at 10 kW with synchronous generator was also fabricated. A special blade hinge protected the blades from overload (?).

In the following years the company developed still bigger machines, and even 1.5 MegaWatt Turbines in year 2001.

Downwind one-bladed rotor with counterwight.

Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm GmbH, MBB of Munich was involved in the failed GROWIAN project. After that project they chose to work with commercially easier  Turbine sizes. A 15 – 25 kW Turbine named “Monopteros 20” was marketed, and the 1 MW Monopteros 50 pictured at left.

A Monopteros 15 of 15 - 30 kW, and a 2000 - 3000 kW model named Aeolus WTS 75 was also marketed. The Aeolus WTS 75 was identical to the Swedish Näsudden I turbine built by KaMeWa of Kristinehamn with blades delivered by ERNO GmbH of Germany. (Partly MBB)

Later an Italian-German partnership was tried with the production of  M30  150 – 200 kW Turbine by MBB and Riva Calzoni.

Downwind rotor turbine. Models of 30 kW, 65 kW, 80 kW, 100 kW and 300 kW were also developed.

The design was developed by Dr. Wagner of List at Island Sylt in the North Sea. Prototypes on land, as well as installed on a ship, were tested.

Fabricated by Burbacher Stahl- und Waggonbau GmbH in Saarbrücken. And later by company F. TACKE KG at Rheine. Tacke was a.o. to produce the WR 150.

In a cooperation with the Danish "Folkecenter" Tacke later developed a modern turbine, using LM Blades. TACKE was later acquired by Enron, and finally became part of GE Windpower.

Upwind turbine with variable speed generator. Initially called: Lagerwey van de Loenhorst. Later called Lagerwey the Windmaster. (Not to be confused with HMZ Windmaster.). For some time the turbine was called Zephyros. The latest megawatt design was marketed by German company WISTRA.

Ca. 250 LW 15/75 and LW 18/80 were operating by early 1990s, according to Paul Gipe, "Wind Energy Comes of age".

The 750 kW LW 50 Turbine was a multipole generator, gearless design, much like the German Enercon Turbines.

Later Turbines were Lagerwey LW 58/B3 750 kW and also MegaWatt turbines.

Picture shows the first Turbine developed.

Early key persons: Brothers Henk and Nn. Lagerwey.

Like Enercon, Vestas and Bonus (now Siemens), Ecotecnia is a surviving Pioneer Wind Turbine manufacturer.

Upwind rotor. Developed and manufactured by Ecotecnia s.Coop

Later this Spanish wind cooperative veteran company developed bigger turbines. (More info later) In 2001 the pioneer company was awarded the European Poul la Cour Prize for outstanding contribution to the development of wind power.

 

In 2007 Ecotecnia manufactures a broad range of turbines: 750 kW, 1300 kW, 1670 kW, 2000 kW and 3000 kW

Blades were wood/epoxy laminate with glued in studs for the root attachment to hub.

In 1981, Howden entered into a joint venture with WTG Energy Systems of New York, USA to supply a 250 kW Turbine to CEGB at Carmarthen Bay in South Wales. In 1982 Howden started developing its own design: The Howden HWP-200 with rotor diameter 22 m, 200 kW generator and rotor speed 58 rpm.(Later specs were changed to 300 kW and 45 rpm)

In 1994 the California Energy Commission reported 91 Howden Turbines Installed in California with a capacity of 28.3 MW ( average 311 kW)

The nacelle was fabricated by KAMEVA (Karlstads Mekaniska Verkstad of Kristinehamn = KMW). The blades of the prototype were fabricated by German ERNO GmbH (MBB. (Messerschmidt-Bölkow-Blohm)). The prototype was built at Näsudden on the island of Gotland, for the National Swedish Board for Energy Source Development.

Later the turbine design was marketed as WTS 75-3 by a venture group of Boving KMW turbin AB of Kristinehamn and the KVÆRNER GROUP of Norway. (Hydro Power Station manufacturers)

Still later Messerschmitt-Bölkow-Blohm GmbH marketed the turbine as Aeolus WTS-75

Wind Turbine Systems was part of the Swedish State-owned Swedyard Group of Ship Yards. Karlskronavarvet (Ship Yard) was the key operator, and the turbines were designed in a joint effort between Swedyards and American Hamilton Standard, owned by United Technologies.. Blades were fabricated by Hamilton Standard, USA, using a fibreglass filament winding technique.

Nacelle was fabricated by Karlskronavarvet of Karlskrona. Rotor had Teetering hub. Tower was Steel shell.

The prototype was installed at Maglarp, Sweden, at the Öresund near Copenhagen (Denmark)

Karlskronavarvet and Hamilton Standard also fabricated a sister turbine to this: The WTS 4 (4MW) - ordered by the US DOI. This was erected at Medicine Bow, Wyoming USA.

The industrial venture group - Swedyards - tried to market the WTS 3 and WTS 4, as well as a smaller model named WTS 1200, on the international market. They did not succede.

Upwind turbine. Aluminium blades. Prototype shown left, is a Model W 15050 E. With 15 m rotor diameter and 50 kW generator.

A later model of this turbine was titled "The Road Runner" , because of its similarities with the well known bird of the Californian desert lands.
