This final report describes the design, manufacture, installation and monitoring of a wind converter, rated at 250 kW and equipped with a 25 metre diameter upwind rotor. Particular attention was paid to the design of the rotor hub and the tower, and extended measurements of the mechanical behaviour of the rotor and the tower have been taken. The machine was in operation for 5,616 hours in 1989 and produced 361 MWh. Following the successful demonstration phase a number of units similar to that demonstrated have been installed in Germany
