ATB Riva Calzoni completed the installation of ATB 60.28 DD small wind turbine to 60 kW in Lercara Friddi, in the province of Palermo. 

Between June and July, the wind turbines of Lercara Friddi, in the province of Palermo, Sicily, and Cancellara, in the province of Potenza, Basilicata, were installed and networked. In September Two more equipements will be installed in Trapani and Marsala.

The tower assembly (three sections, turbines and blades) and cabling (cable descent and connections) were completed in two and a half days by the ATB Riva Calzoni’s team and a 120-ton crane.

The small wind turbines ATB 60.28 DD de 60 kW equipement was produced in the new plant of Artogne, the renewable energy hub. From the point of view of engineering and design, machines, made with european components, represent the best of 60 kW wind power technology. The specificity that distinguishes the ATB Riva Calzoni small wind turbine is the ability to maintain high productivity even with low speed winds. This efficiency guarantee and high energy efficiency depend mainly on the technical features of the product: the rotor dimensions, with its 28 meters diameter, and then the presence of the pitch, the hydraulic control system of the pitch, which allows To blades to self-regulate in relation to the wind power and direction of the wind. The small wind turbines is a direct drive and therefore doesn’t use any speed multiplier. Speed variability is guaranteed by a synchronous generator with inverter.
