Enercon E-126 was manufactured by a German company named Enercon and is the most powerful wind turbine in the world.
This model has a rotor diameter of 126 m, a a hub height of 135 m, and a height of 198 m. With this, the Enercon E-126 is capable of generating up to 7.58 megawatts of power per turbine. Since its technical revision in 2009, the power output is 7 MW instead of 6 MW.
The tower of the turbine weighs 2,800 t, its foundation about 2,500 t, the generator 220 t, the machine housing 128 t, and the rotor 364 t. This makes it a total weight of 6,000 t. Considering everything we’ve find out so far, it’s no wonder that the list price of only one unit is $14 million. The install costs, are of course, additional.
