Ampair 6000 watt grid tied wind turbine

Ampair 6000 Watt Grid Tied Wind Turbine

The impressive Ampair 6000 watt Grid Tied Wind Turbine won the prestigious Rushlight Windpower Award in 2008.

The Ampair 6000 Grid Tied Wind Turbine has a rotor diameter of 5.5 m and is ideal for supplying power to remote farms or rural houses, public buildings, schools or industrial infrastructure.

Like all Ampair turbines, it is manufactured from high quality marine grade materials making it particularly suited to remote, coastal or cold-weather applications and in keeping with the company's quality ethos is designed to be compliant with the IEC 61400-2 standard for a Class I turbine. This means it can be easily and safely installed worldwide. It is a fully sealed unit that does not require costly annual servicing.

A range of mast options is available (to be purchased separately). As with all turbines, more height gives greater power because of the increase in wind speed.

The Ampair 6000 Grid Connect Wind Turbine package includes a Power- One Aurora PVI 6000 Grid Connect inverter.
