Endurance X29 225kW

Time-tested and performance-proven

The 225kW Endurance X29 is a class IB turbine with a 29m rotor diameter designed for use in areas with a high wind speed. 

The original X-series design by Danish company Norwin has now been generating clean energy around the globe for over 25 years. Having stood the test time, Endurance have added the latest technological refinements to build upon the proven design. The X-series is now manufactured in Endurance’s UK factory in the Midlands.

Despite an impressive power yield capability – and with 30m & 40m tower height options – the X-29 still falls within farm-scale planning parameters unlike larger 500kw+ turbines which usually require higher strategic level planning applications.

Earthmill installed the UK’s first X29 in Cornwall in November 2013 and now operate a fleet of X-series turbines stretching from the South-West of England to Aberdeenshire. 

The X29 is best suited to farms, commercial and industrial sites with a high average annual wind speed (over 7.5m/s) with high energy requirements. 

 

“The high electricity cost of running a dairy has prevented us from expanding. But the wind turbine will allow us to invest in doubling our capacity, hiring more local labour and buying more local supplies. ”

Power Production

The Endurance X-29 is a 225kW wind turbine with a 29m rotor diameter.  It has an efficient generator which operates at a low-level resistance allowing the turbine to start producing energy at a wind speed of just 4 m/s. A 225kW wind turbine is an ideal solution for landowners wishing to reap a higher power yield.

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.
