Eleon turbine sets new Estonian wind generation record

Baltic News Service. 3rd of January, 2017

The M3116 turbine of the wind technology company AS Eleon set the new Estonian record by generating 12.2 gigawatt-hours of electricity during 2017.

The efficiency level of the wind generator was 46.2 percent and the dependability rate 99.7 percent.

“In the field of wind energy the general understanding is that onshore wind turbines with efficiency above 45 percent are capable of producing electricity also without renewable energy support. We are glad that Eleon managed to cross this magical barrier — no wind turbine in Estonia has been capable of it so far,” Eleon board member Oleg Sonajalg said in a press release.

When manufactured in serial production, Eleon wind farms are able to produce electricity under market conditions.

“As far as technology goes, we would be ready in principle to take on the role of producer of base energy in Estonia already in the near future, as has been done to date by the oil shale fueled power stations, where output is being wound down continuously as a result of tougher environmental requirements,” Eleon board member Andres Sonajalg said.

He said that as a result of international interconnections, instability of wind energy generation is no longer a problem.

“The surpluses and shortages emerging in the production of wind energy can be handled with the help of new, powerful interconnection lines with our neighbors such as Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Sweden and Poland,” Sonajalg said.

Established in 2007, Eleon AS is a developer of multi-megawatt class wind turbines. The first 3M116 wind turbine using Eleon technology was put up on Saaremaa island in 2013.
