Vestas is the worldwide chief in onshore wind, nevertheless to proceed to steer the growth of wind vitality into changing into the dominant vitality supply, it’s essential for Vestas to change into a pacesetter in offshore wind. This journey was launched with the complete acquisition of our former offshore three way partnership, and we are actually taking one other step ahead alongside our offshore innovation pathway by introducing the V236-15.zero MW turbine. The new expertise establishes a robust basis for Vestas’ offshore management journey by elevating the benchmark for efficiency and continued price discount in offshore expertise, making Vestas extremely aggressive in offshore tenders already in 2021.
Henrik Andersen, Vestas President and CEO, says “Introducing our new offshore platform is a large achievement for everybody at Vestas, because it marks an enormous leap ahead in a vital journey. As a world renewables chief, each determination Vestas takes in the present day have to be in service of constructing scale for renewables sooner or later – solely by doing this may we guarantee a extra sustainable future vitality system. Offshore wind will play an integral function within the development of wind vitality and the V236-15.zero MW shall be a driver on this growth by decreasing levelised price of vitality thus making our prospects extra aggressive in offshore tenders going ahead”.
As a expertise chief for over 40 years with 25 years of expertise in offshore and an unparalleled put in base, Vestas has performed a key function in rising the affect of renewables throughout the worldwide vitality system. This development has been supported by our drive to mature the renewables , making use of our experience to elevating requirements to help elevated scale. The V236-15.zero MW will proceed this ongoing effort by harnessing the optimum design synergies from current turbine platforms, such because the 9 MW and EnVentus platforms, and increasing the industrialisation of turbine design by way of a modular method to scale elements.
With the world’s largest swept space exceeding 43,000 m2, the V236-15.zero MW delivers industry-leading efficiency and strikes the boundaries of wind vitality manufacturing to round 80 GWh/12 months, sufficient to energy round 20,000 European households and save greater than 38,000 tonnes of CO2, which is the equal to eradicating 25,000 passenger automobiles from the street yearly.
The first V236-15.zero MW prototype is predicted to be put in in 2022, whereas serial manufacturing is scheduled for 2024.
