BM is supplier of the magnetic assemblies for Haliade-x

Bakker Magnetics is proud to announce it is selected to manufacture and supply the magnetic assemblies for the Haliade-X wind turbine that GE Renewable Energy is currently introducing in the market. The Haliade-X is the most powerful offshore wind turbine in the world to date, featuring a 12 MW capacity (the world’s first) and a height of 260 meter. Bakker Magnetics is selected based on more than 45 years of experience in assembling powerful permanent magnets on rotors and carriers. The first prototype of the Haliade-X is currently erected at the Maasvlakte in Rotterdam.

The Haliade-X’s vast rotor will harness wind from a 38,000 square metre swept-area to turn a hulking, digitally-controlled direct-drive and permanent-magnet-generator transmission system with magnet assemblies produced by Bakker Magnetics. Over the past few months, the turbine components have arrived from factories across Western Europe at the project site, located on the quayside of what is the continent’s biggest port.

GE continues to innovate with the development of Haliade-X, supporting its customers in an increasingly competitive and rapidly growing market. The Haliade-X 12 MW’s market-leading nacelle and 107-m long blades will allow GE Renewable Energy customers to generate more power more effectively, in an environment in which they face increased competition. The turbine can generate 67 GWh in gross annual energy, providing enough clean energy to power 16,000 European households and save up to 42 million metric tons of CO2, which is the equivalent of the emissions generated by 9,000 vehicles in one year alone.
