EcoSwing is the Drivetrain of the Year 2018. Gold Medal from Windpower Monthly
This year's Turbine of the Year Award in the Drivetrain Category went to EcoSwing. To be precise we got the GOLD MEDAL! This is truly fantastic!
EcoSwing has been bestowed by the well-known trade journal Windpower Monthly. Eize de Vries highlighted the journal's motivation in "vastly reduced material usage has contributed to making superconducting technology competitive with conventional electric machines". According to Windpower Monthly this fits well to the sector trend of higher rated turbines and changing grid demands.
As we see it—there is little to add.
Windpower Monthly is the leading news magazine of the international wind energy business, publishing non-stop since 1985. You can read the entire article on the web site of Windpower Monthly.
