BARRE, VT--(Marketwired - July 16, 2014) - Northern Power Systems (www.northernpower.com) (TSX: NPS), a next-generation renewable energy technology company, has launched a new 60 kilowatt (kW) permanent magnet/direct drive wind turbine, the NPS 60-24.
The unit has been specifically engineered for the Italian and other low wind regime markets and can generate up to 15% more energy than the outgoing NPS 60-23. The blade and rotor have been redesigned to maximize annual energy production (AEP), the new nacelle is 30% smaller, and an improved tower configuration provides further operating efficiencies.
The NPS 60-24 is currently exclusively available in Italy. It has been designed to meet local market requirements and government regulations to optimize revenue generating capabilities for owners.
Locally based service teams will help ensure reliability as these new turbines are added to Northern Power Systems' global fleet of 100kW and 60kW turbines.
The fleet has surpassed 5 million run time hours with over 99% grid-connected median availability and zero incidents since its initial product introduction in 2008.
Reinout Oussoren, Northern Power Systems' VP of Global Sales, said, "In 2013, the NPS 60-23 surpassed all previous sales records with triple digit orders coming from the Italian market. Northern Power Systems currently has the largest fleet of 60kW wind turbines in Italy and plans to further expand its market leading position. The NPS 60-24 is designed to meet specific new needs and customer expectations in the Italian market, while increasing the company's addressable market and providing further opportunities for growth."

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
