We are delighted with the outcome of this AMRC project. It is just one element of a series of developments all aimed at manufacturing large direct drive generators for wind here in the UK. This project places Magnomatics on the right track to develop bigger generators and attract big offshore wind OEMs to Sheffield and the UK.
