General information about Suzlon S70 wind turbines
Manufacturing of the S6X series wind turbines began in 2002 and Suzlon eventually phased out production in 2016. Around 3673.75 MW of total capacity is installed around the globe (counting S70, S64 and similar turbines).
Suzlon built the S70 turbines with an asynchronous generator and a SFS (Suzlon Flexi Slip) system, enabling the generator to run with a high slip. In combination with the pitch system, the generator ensures an optimized energy performance with low loads within a wide wind range.
Nordic Wind Technology offers two certified retrofit solutions for Suzlon S70 turbines – a MITA solution and a Bachmann solution.
