The first phase of a large wind farm in the Mil-e-Nader village in Zabol County, southeastern province of Sistan-Baluchistan, started partial operation on Thursday, deputy minister of energy said.
“The 50 MW plant, under construction on 25 hectares, has 20 turbines the first of which was linked to the national grid,” Homayoun Haeri was quoted as saying by the Energy Ministry news portal.
The turbines are equipped with a permanent magnet direct-drive system in which the turbine and the generator are joined to form a compact and structurally integrated unit. 
“The design gives free access to all parts for easy installation and maintenance.” The robust low speed rotor design with no separate cooling system results in minimum wear, reduced maintenance requirements, lower life cycle costs, and a long lifetime, Haeri said.
