Endurance E4660 85kW

Quietly maximising output and efficiency 

Based on the classic E-series design, the new more efficient E-4660 85kW wind turbine demands a 35% higher energy yield than the E-3120. This has been made possible with the development of larger blades which increases the swept area of the turbine.

Endurance claim the improved efficiency is the equivalent of turning back the clock on the Feed-In-Tariff by 2 years.

The class IIA machine generates energy at a lower rotor speed of just 33RPM. This creates less noise, rendering the E-4660 as the quietest turbine in its class, and slashing the distance required as a buffer zone between the turbine and neighbouring properties to just 170m

Earthmill installed the first 85kW Endurance E4660 on the UK mainland in July 2015.

The E-4660 Endurance turbine is classified as a 85kW wind turbine.  Often manufacturers rate wind turbines at their peak performance, however Endurance rate their turbines by their average performance. The E-4660 actually peaks at 98kW output and therefore must be registered to OFGEM as such. 

The AEP table allows you to see what the annual energy production is likely to be based on the wind speed of your site.  If you aren’t sure what your wind speed is you can find out by requesting a complimentary site assessment through Earthmill.

 

 

“It’s great to be able to show people what the turbine’s doing and how
many houses needs it has produced. It was especially nice to be able
to keep an eye on it from the other side of the world when on holiday”

Jonathan Sharp, Yorkshire farmer

 

 

 

“It was fantastic. I just wish everything in life was as simple as that.  All
the 
work, including the planning application, was done by Earthmill”

Guy Benson, East Ridings farmer
