Why Lagerwey

About Lagerwey

Being an inventor Henk Lagerweij, driven by the oil crises and the novice hunger towards alternative energy sources, established his own company in 1979 in the Netherlands.

Various successful turbine types have been designed and manufactured each of them characterized by a number of innovative features. Lagerwey was the first to produce variable speed wind turbines with passive blade pitch control to limit the rotor speed, over a decade later Lagerwey introduced direct drive technology to the wind sector, simultaneously with a German manufacturer.

Starting with a LW10/35, at the end of the 80’s Lagerwey became well known with its two bladed LW15/75 design, its successor, the LW18/80 – based on similar design principles – has become an outright technical and commercial success. Far over 600 units of these types have been installed in various countries and today almost all of these are in operation, often facing its 2nd or 3rd live!
