Introducing the NPS 60C:

A 60 kilowatts rated power PMDD wind turbine specifically designed for Italian and UK markets. It provides long-term benefits with lower ownership costs over the lifetime of the turbine.

NPS 60C - Northern Power Systems

The “C-Platform” is a complete redesign of NPS’ distributed wind platform that has been deployed around the world since 2008. The nacelle is now 30% smaller with a completely new tower configuration. This results in lower weight and load characteristics reducing foundation and installation costs.

The NPS 60C uses gearless direct drive and a permanent magnet generator to achieve best-in-class reliability. Optimized to generate high output with a lower noise signature, our turbines begin making power at wind speeds as low as 3 meters per second and provide the highest power at 9-15 mps, providing clear economic benefits in all kinds of wind regimes.

  • Simple and low cost of ownership Our PMDD technology maximizes energy capture, outperforms conventional gearbox designs, and reduces maintenance costs.
  • Robust Built on the time-tested NPS 100 platform that was originally designed for Antarctica, the NPS 60-24 stands up to the strong winds of Scotland (the windiest country in Europe) and regularly faces tropical cyclone force winds in Alaska and the Caribbean.
  • Plug and play Our state-of-the-art full power converter design provides smooth, clean power to local grids, simplifying grid interconnect and supporting grid stability, making the NPS 60-24 the best choice for a variety of applications.
  • Quiet Our gearless design, advanced blades, and lower rpm and tip speed, all contribute to lower noise levels and allow for a longer set back distance.
  • Easier permitting with low height profile, tower options The elegantly designed NPS 60-24 comes with a variety of optional tubular steel tower heights that helps you balance annual energy production (AEP) and planning requirements.
  • Reliable Reinforced blades, gearless design and a track record of zero incidents across its entire fleet.

The NPS 60C is being installed globally at FiT (Feed-in-Tariff) locations as well as on-site generation at farms, businesses, schools, hospitals and remote locations. Our turbines produce green energy at the point of consumption, providing a positive environmental impact on the community and pleasing aesthetics.
