A wind turbine with the largest rotor in the world went into operation on October 6. Siemens began field testing a 154-metre rotor as part of its 6-MW offshore wind turbine in Osterild, Denmark.

The turbine has rotor blades that each measure 75 metres in length, giving a record rotor diameter of 154 metres. Each turbine can produce 5 million kilowatt hours of electricity, enough for 6,000 households.

Meanwhile, Canada’s largest wind energy conference opens in Toronto on October 14. The Canadian Wind Energy Association (CanWEA) conference and exhibition is in Toronto, October 14-17 at the Direct Energy Centre.
