This is the Enercon E-126, the first wind turbine with 6 MW rated power, rotor diameter: 126m (413ft), hub height: 135m(450ft). Two of these giant wind power units have been built for testing at an onshore location, Rysumer Nacken, near Emden, in the northwest of Germany. Here each WPU is expected to produce about 18 Mio kWh per year, enough for more than 4500 homes.

I am fascinated by those beautiful, effective and environmentally sound modern wind turbines. This is the Repower MM92, rated power: 2000kW, rotor diameter: 92.5m, hub height: 100m. See also the record breaking 6MW E-126 from ENERCON www.youtube.com
