Following the MHI Vestas V174-9.5 MW turbine’s market launch in February 2019, the prototype has now been efficiently put in at Østerild National Test Centre in Denmark.
The sturdy take a look at program on the Danish Test Centre Østerild will allow MHI Vestas to completely monitor the reliability and efficiency output of the corporate’s flagship offshore wind turbine.
“The development of the V174-9.5 MW prototype at Østerild is a much-needed sign that Denmark goals to retain management within the wind sector’s industrial testing and verification applications,” stated MHI Vestas CTO, Torben Hvid Larsen. “Now, with our newest flagship turbine constructed, we stay up for placing the turbine by its paces forward of our first business initiatives.”
With restricted design modifications, the V174-9.5 MW prototype builds on the confirmed V164 platform, producing extra power from decrease wind speeds. With 85-meter blades, the turbine has a tip top of 197 meters. One V174-9.5 MW turbine will be capable to present energy to an equal of 9000 UK households.
The 934 MW order pipeline for the V174-9.5 MW turbine includes initiatives all through Europe and Asia Pacific, with the primary models scheduled for business set up as a part of the German offshore wind initiatives, Baltic Eagle and Arcadis Ost 1, in 2022.
