Turbine can reach up to 9 MW
MHI Vestas Offshore Wind, a joint venture of Vestas Wind Systems AS and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, has unveiled its uprated V164 8-MW wind turbine, enabling it to reach 9 MW at specific site conditions.
The company’s prototype at Østerild has broken the energy generation record for a commercially available offshore wind turbine, producing 216,000 kWh over a 24-hour period, the company said.
The increased energy production per wind turbine will add greater value for many projects and save on capital expenditure (CAPEX) costs as fewer machines will be needed to meet the park capacity.
The 9-MW wind turbine is part of the product portfolio designed to deliver affordable offshore wind power. The turbine is based on the V164-8.0 MW, a machine already installed at the 258-MW Burbo Bank Extension, and which has a firm order book of over 1.6 GW.
